The Microbial World
Microbes In, On, and Around You

Grades 4-6

Students will discover the fascinating microbial world present around
them every day. Students start by sampling a variety of places in
their school as well as locations on themselves. After describing
their results in terms of numbers and variety of microorganisms found,
students will become familiar with the major groups of microorganisms-
fungi, protozoa, bacteria, and viruses. Discussion emphasizes both the
similarities and differences between the groups. Students will discuss
how they can limit negative interactions with microorganisms as well as
