Bacteria and Prokaryotes Crossword Puzzle I love to use crossword puzzles as a means to reinforce vocabulary and to practice spelling. This crossword puzzle has 48 terms that are commonly used in a high school unit on bacteria and prokaryotes.

This puzzle is perfect to use in combination with my Viruses and Bacteria PowerPoint Presentation.The puzzle can be used as a review for a test, as a homework assignment, as a classwork assignment or as a quiz.

There are 48 vocabulary words included in this crossword. The words are:

prokaryotic, Archaea, Bacteria, Eubacteria, archaebacteria, peptidoglycan, cocci, bacilli, spirilla, flagella, pathogenic, chromosome, ribosomes, capsule, pili, cell membrane, heterotroph, saprophyte, parasite, autotroph, photoautotroph, chemoautotroph, binary fission, conjugation, endospores, decomposers, endotoxins, exotoxins, pathology, transformation, obligate anaerobes, obligate aerobes, facultative, plasmid, cyanobacteria, Gram stain, thermophiles, halophiles, methanogens, parasitism, commensalism, mutualism, symbiosis, viruses, antibiotics, vaccine, proteins, and nitrogen fixation.

I use a crossword puzzle in every chapter I teach for test review, to reinforce key terms, and for spelling practice.

This puzzle is appropriate for biology and life science students in grades 8 - 12.

Answer key is included.
