PowerPoint presentation on Characteristics and Diversity of Bacteria (Kingdom Monera).
This colorful presentation includes over 15 images of different types of bacteria and includes the following information:
- history of bacteria
- Morphology of bacteria - 3 main shapes, size
- internal and external bacterial structure
- movement of bacteria
- classification of bacteria by movement and respiration
- bacteria nutrition
- a discussion of a few common types of bacteria
- bacterial disease transmission
Please see my site for a student worksheet that is available that is exactly the same as the presentation with blanks for students to fill in as they watch, discuss the presentation.
I have found these powerpoints to be great tools in the classroom as students have the opportunity to actually see and discuss images instead of simply words. I have sold this particular powerpoint to over 100 teachers in Canada and have had great reviews for my work.
