My lesson will introduce students to the microbes of the world – both helpful and harmful! My approach involves a mix of group discussion, lecture, and art. Students will learn about beneficial and harmful microorganisms and then create a clay mural to illustrate examples. This multidisciplinary lesson will teach students how art can be used to communicate ideas in other subjects and provide students with a visual aid to help them remember what they have learned in their science class.
