Teaching about Microbes
The Big Idea:
The idea for the students is to learn about microorganisms and the five different types. Such as
learning bacteria, protozoa, fungi, algae, and virus. The students will learn the characteristics of
The Nervous System
Students will be learning today about the Nervous system. They will be learning the
major parts of the nervous system and how they work, using a nervous system game they will be
learning how your nerves transfer messages to

Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink
For this assignment you will be investigating your water footprint, and how personal choices can
change that footprint. Please pay close attention to the instructions in
1. Lake Mead was formed by the damming of the Colorado River in 1937. It
took between one and two years to fill the reservoir. After it was filled it
experienced about 20 years of remaining relatively stable, with a pattern

1. Old days, there were 2 kingdoms (plants and animals)
2. 1970 it was expanded to kingdoms because of microorganisms
3. Late 1970s , K. woese proposed 3 domains instead of the 2 kingdoms because of cell
type and evolution
What about Mutations and Evolution?
Neutral mutations. They are quite until natural selection pressure makes them valuable.
Is genetic material (DNA) in a protein envelope
Injected into cytoplasm of other cells, it can be dormant un
A. Early Earth
1. Little Oxygen and really not much light. 2.9 Billion years
2. NH3, CH4, H2, H20 were the building molecules of life.
3. Stuff collected in tidal pools- Primal soup
4. Early organisms used RNA only and evolved later to DNA-RNA-
