Chapter 5 review quiz: http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0073524166/student_view0/chapter5/chapter_quiz.html

Chapter 5 Flashcards for review:http://glencoe.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0011062009/student_view0/chapter5/key_terms_flashcards.html

Using five pieces of overlapping paper create a flipchart that summarizes the information from notes, the textbook section on
Chapter 5: The Microbial World. The title on the flipchart is Ocean- The Microbial World.
The following ten headings will appear on the ten tabs of your flipchart:
1.Classification system(Is an organism a virus, prokaryote or eukaryote),
4.Archaea Bacteria,
5.Prokaryote Food,
6.Unicellular Algae,
9.Foraminiferans, and
Under the tabs of each section you will summarize in a couple of paragraphs or multiple bullets the main characteristics of each
microbial group or organisms and their importance.
PICTURES: On each page as applicable- Use the pictures I gave you for helping to enhance your review by cutting and attaching
the pictures with the corresponding organism.
