Multicellular organisms consist of specialized cells that perform
different tasks within the organism’s body. The entire organism
requires all the different types of cells to be present, and the
individual cells cannot survive without being a part of the organism.

A unicellular organism is a complete living entity consisting of just
one cell. It’s survival is not dependent upon other cells. Unicellular
organisms may divide into two parts, with each part being a new
unicellular organism that is a copy of the original cell.

A colonial organism is a collection of unicellular organisms
living together. The difference between a multicellular organism
and a colonial organism is that individual one-celled organisms
from a colony can, if separated, survive on their own, while cells
from a multicellular life-form (e.g., cells from a brain) cannot.
