What Do You Know About Microbes? (pre-assessment)
This lesson begins with a student pre-assessment that allows you, the teacher, to evaluate student knowledge levels before beginning the activity. After students have completed the pre-assessment, discuss any questions they may have, but do not provide direct answers to the pre-assessment questions. Students will revisit their answers to these questions at the end of the Microbes unit, as part of the post-assessment activity.
During this lesson, students will consider the mass of microbes in the body and learn about the prevalence of microbes in our world. They will begin a concept map that will help them to organize knowledge, concepts and ideas encountered over the course of the unit.
