Introduce your students to the microbial worlds of bacteria, fungi, and viruses with this site that provides entertaining background information, ideas for classroom experiments, and a collection of "Microbes in the News" articles. Find out when hands should be washed and what happens when they are not! Interested students can even explore a "Careers" link that offers interviews with experts in the field, advice on finding a mentor, and tips on how to become a microbiologist. Available in English and Spanish.

In the Classroom

Use the videos on this site as a supplement to a lecture on microbes. One video that would be great, "E. Coli Animation," shows the growth and reproduction of e.coli in a quick YouTube clip. Not all school internet systems allow for access to YouTube, so make sure to check your school's policies before use. If it does work, some of these videos do a great job of detailing specific microbes and their life-cycles. Definitely a lot more interesting and fun for students to watch than reading the same information out of a textbook!

How do today's portion sizes compare with those from twenty years ago? Students can find out through an interactive quiz that tests their awareness of "super-sizing." The quiz displays photos of specific food items from "then" and "now" and provides specific caloric information about the older and current versions. Students are asked to guess how long it will take to burn off those extra calories given every-day exercise. A BMI calculator and menu planner are also provided on the site. Created by the National Institutes of Health.

This Web-only documentary series by PBS is an interactive exploration of "borders" in our lives. In this episode, decisions concerning what we eat, drink, and breathe are examined. What do we choose and why? This is a very well done, yet rather cerebral site that would be best suited for independent investigation in a computer lab (headphones required) followed by discussion. Lesson plans are available for download.

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on the interactive whiteboard during a class discussion of a debate in current politics or while preparing for a debate in your own classroom. Allow students to explore the site with the intentions of creating their own propaganda for their debate side or for both sides if used in a more general discussion. This is a great way to get students to start thinking about persuasion in the media, and how politicians can use it. Excellent resource for a US government class!
