Dirt Life

Students select and collect soil samples from a variety of locations (schoolyard, home, etc.). They do this lab after an interest-generating discussion about "dirt" and microbes. Students make a dilution in sterile water, plate it on a nutrient agar Petri dish, and then observe it 1-7 days later.
