“The mugshot” – a microscope picture or diagram of
your specific species of bacteria
(You may print up a picture or draw one, but the                      20
picture must fill up at least one third of the page)

A physical description of your bacteria - what
shape is it? Is it bumpy or smooth? Is it covered in                  20
cilia or flagella? How does it move around?
(Use LOTS of descriptive adjectives!)
The bacteria’s “M.O.” – How does your type of

usually found?                                                        10

“Armed and dangerous” - rate how deadly your
bacteria is, from 1 – 10. (1 is totally harmless, 10                  5
