Ocean Microbes
Dedicated to JOHN CARY the first PP presenter..
  • Used November 2008
  • with three Sophomore Biology classes

Basically. We finished a six week unit on a
survey of five kingdoms (eubacteria,
archaebacteria, protists, fungi and animals). I
split the end-of-the- lesson up into two summary
activities A. one focused on just microbes B.
the other focused on any organism from what we
  • Put students in groups of three with their
    computers and scraps of paper
  • Put PowerPoint up on screen
  • Run through a slide at a time, groups try to
    name organism

Used the PP from EARTH website
  • After each slide student groups try to name
    organism using notes and internet
  • Last slide gives key words for internet search
    to help
  • no penalties for incorrect answers no limit on
    possible answers
  • One point for each slide
  • 10 points if dont identify by end of series
  • Low points wins at end

Key words symbiotic algae with coral
  • Students working solo or in groups of two
  • Pick an organism from the five classes we covered
  • Students construct posters with flips

Good ? and Needs Improvement?
?Students had fun with both the PP quiz and the
constructing of posters. ?nice review of
microbes and flexible (you can pick which
microbes on which you want to focus). ? students
use the internet to search for meaningful
information. ?Students could make up new PP quiz
series for the following year.   ?Time
constraints was the biggest weakness. Game ,
poster construction, using posters during
class ?The ESP data needed some explaining. I
used two organisms that could be identified using
the ESP data. The first one, I didnt help the
students out, but after it, we discussed how to
figure it out as a class. The next one was easier
for them. The Pelagibacter data wasnt the most
clear-cut using the ESP data. Also the data from
June 4, 2007 does NOT show Pseudonitzschia
australis. As more ESP data becomes available
this will be a great tool. ? Finding
classification information on microbes as
compared to animals  
Modifications and other resources
Remove the URLs for the pictures from the PP
slides (quite a few students were smart enough to
use them to use them to figure out the
organisms). Taxonomy varied, sometimes just
genus, sometimes scientific name, sometimes just
group. If time was no problem. Once the
microbe has been identified, have the students do
a quick (10 minutes or less) search on it and add
information that they think is relevant/important.
  Yellow Prompts need to be checked ahead of
time (and the key words changed). Part of a
bigger lesson plan lots of other avenues to
