In this section students are introduced to the wonderful world of microbes through animations and three different activities. Topic focuses on the good and bad microbes, and the types and shapes of these and provides an excellent starting point for all additional e-Bug resources.
This lesson is designed to introduce students to bacteria, viruses and fungi. The introductory activity allows students to combine their observational and creative skills to make a microbe of their own choice, exploring various microbial types and shapes.
DISCLAIMER: e-Bug was developed for use in schools pre-COVID-19 and so some activities may require modification based on your school’s distancing guidelines.
Please use your judgement and tell us how you have modified the activities, or if you would like to discuss some ideas, contact
