If the due date falls during an absence, weekend or school holiday, please make sure you have submitted the quiz PRIOR to that date in order to earn credit.
Topic: Microorganisms (Bacteria, Protists, Fungi)
Due Date: 1/21-2/7
SB3. Students will derive the relationship between single-celled and multi-celled organisms and the increasing complexity of systems.
b. Compare how structures and function vary between the six groups (archaebacteria, eubacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals).
c. Examine the evolutionary basis of modern classification systems (archaebacteria, eubacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals).

Microbe Scavenger Hunt:
Now that we have learned about molecular and microbiology, and other biology that we cannot see, it is finally time for macrobiology, and the living organisms that we CAN see.So it’s time to collect some specimens.
Get a slice (or piece) of bread. Fresh bread with no preservatives is best. Moisten your bread with some water (it should not be soggy and dripping, but should feel moist to the touch).
Wipe your moistened bread on an outside surface. Wipe both sides.
Place your bread in a sealed ziplock bag.
Keep your bread in a dark and dry place (like under your bed) for a week.
Find a local pond. (You need a body of standing water. Streams—even slowly moving ones—move too fast and puddles have not been around long enough).
Use a bottle (water bottles work well) to scoop up some water WITH sediment (leaves/plant matter/sludge from the bottom of the pond). Bottles with lids/caps work best for transporting.
Let your bottle sit open in a warm and sunny place (like a kitchen windowsill) for a week.
Collect a mushroom or bracket fungus from a lawn, a hiking trail, or a tree.
Place in a paper bag.
Extra Credit: Make a spore print. Directions may be found at
Bacteria & Mold Collecting Lab Extra Credit:
Take and print at least 3 time-lapse pictures of your bacterial growth. Choose at least 2 bacterial colonies and measure the diameter of the colony each day.
- Graph the growth of your colonies with mm/day (title, x-axis, y-axis, units, key).
- Calculate how many mm/day your colonies are growing (show your work). Is your growth linear or exponential?
- Estimate how big your colony would be after 1 week (show your work)
- If a bacteria can reproduce once every 20 minutes, how many bacteria would you have after 24 hours (show your work).
