Jeopardy-Style Review Game on Bacteria and Prokaryotes.
My students love to review using this Jeopardy Powerpoint review game on bacteria and prokaryotic cells. I have found that my students pay far greater attention to the review when it is in a competitive game format.
PLEASE NOTE: This review game is included in my money-saving bundle: Viruses and Bacteria Complete Unit Bundle. Click this link to view bundle.
This review game has 6 categories with 5 questions in each category. Concepts/terms covered are:
1. Introduction to Bacteria
2. Classification of prokaryotes
3. Characteristics of Bacteria
4. Cell structures of a bacterial cell
5. How do bacteria obtain energy? heterotrophs, autotrophs, parasites, saprophytes, photosynthesis and chemosynthesis.
6. Growth and reproduction of bacteria: requirements for growth, binary fission, conjugation, endospore formation
7. The importance of bacteria: Role of decomposers, nitrogen fixation, human uses of bacteria.
8. Bacterial diseases in humans: Ways bacteria cause disease, pathogens, vaccines, antibiotics.
9. Symbiotic relationships: mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism is discussed.
This game was written with a typical biology I class in mind, but is also very appropriate for a middle school science class. It can easily be edited to make the questions more simple, or more advanced. I use this in combination with my Viruses and Bacteria Powerpoint Presentation.
For this topic (bacteria and prokaryotes), there are many more possible questions that could be asked. If would be very easy for you to delete some of my questions and add some of your own to make this review game more applicable to your students.
