Now look in books to find relative sizes of other microbes and draw circles with different diameters to show the relative sizes – add drawings of each type of microbe to the paper circles and make a display. Enter figures into a spreadsheet ( see below* ) or use a calculator to double a number over and over again to model the increase in a population of bacteria (assume one bacterium splits into two every 30 minutes). How many will there be in an hour, after 6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours? Draw a graph of the results of the calculation above. This should be a line graph – help children with scale – you may only be able to graph a few hours! Y4/5 Y5/6 Y6 Information and Communication Technology Links Relating to QCA unit: *Enter figures for bacterial growth into a spreadsheet and add a formula that will automatically calculate the next entry for a time 30 minutes later as a doubling of the previous figure .
