My students compare eubacteria and archaebacteria in both class and lab. These two kingdoms are unicellular prokaryotes that have vast differences in habitats. We used a graphic organizer to look at eubacteria and how they can be both helpful and harmful . Class discussions included pathogenic (harmful) eubacteria and our microbiome that keeps our immune system healthy. Fortune tellers helped them identify characteristics that compared and contrasted prokaryotes from eukaryotes. Each class used an agar plate to place finger prints on. We observed the bacteria go through binary fission as the colony grew larger each day. After a week, students were able to observe different strains of bacteria!
