Bacteria: The good, the bad, the ugly

Seventh graders conduct an experiment.  In this bacteria lesson, 7th graders list living and nonliving things and brainstorm the characteristics they share.  Students are divided into two groups where they put samples of hand soap and cleansers into petri dishes and measure their effects on different bacteria.  Students discuss their findings.
