Harmful Microbes

Students are introduced to the variety of health issues caused by harmful microbes.

As a class, students are encouraged to discuss how bad microbes can be harmful and what we can do to prevent becoming ill. This lesson also highlights that not all illnesses are caused by microbes.

The Bad Bug Challenge word searches and crossword help to reinforce words associated with bad microbes and illness. To reduce the amount of photocopying required, the Student Handouts for this section are also available in an MS PowerPoint presentation for whiteboard use.
