    Small Things Considered
+
    Activity Objectives

     Gain   an appreciation for the ubiquity of microbes

     Understand that only a small percentage of
     bacteria are harmful
+
    Standards Covered

     7th   Grade: Life Science
         1. All living organisms are composed of cells, from
          just one to many trillions whose details usually are
          visible only through a microscope.

     9-12th   Grade: Biology
         10.d. Students know there are important differences
          between bacteria and viruses with respect to their
          requirements for growth and replication, the body’s
          primary defenses against bacterial and viral
          infections, and effective treatments of these
          infections.

        organisms.
       2.a. Students know the differences between the life
        cycles and reproduction methods of sexual and
        asexual organisms.
       7.a. Select and use appropriate tools and technology
        to perform tests, collect data, and display results.
       7.c. Communicate the logical connection among
        hypotheses, science concepts, tests conducted, data
        collected, and conclusions drawn from the scientific
        evidence.
