While most people just think of them as germs, bacteria hold the key to life on Earth. After all, bacteria were our planet's first life forms, and they have found ways to survive and thrive in every corner of the planet. In Bacteria, students will learn the ancient origins of these members of the Kingdom Monera and examine their unique characteristics. Discover not only the nasty effects of bacteria like staphylococcus, but also the helpful acts of the bacteria known as decomposers. A hands-on experiment demonstrates how yogurt bacteria hinder the growth of other microorganisms. One of four volumes in the Simple Organisms in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection.

A teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books & Internet resources is included and available online.
