Whenever we talk about bacteria, I have to remind my students that bacteria are prokaryotes. So when I say, "Prokaryote!" my students respond with "Bacteria!" This is the first slide of the PPTx.
This PPTx can also be used in conjunction with the Intro to Bacteria Open Notes which is sold in my store under separate cover. This bundled unit in Word contains 8 pages - the open notes, the open notes answer KEY, an assignment based on the open notes and the assignment KEY.
To use this PPTx with the Intro to Bacteria Open Notes, simply project the PPTx while the students have the blank copy of the open notes. All the words in the PPTx that are written in red will correspond to the blank that needs to be filled in by the student. This keeps the students engaged. When the see the red word, they know that this is the word that is filled in on their open notes.
