This Introduction to Saline Environments & Microbial Halophiles lesson plan also includes:
- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
If you do not mind wading through unrelated headings (This is not for a physics or STEM course, as it states.) and content (The lesson opens with an article about neurology, not halophiles.), then you will find a valuable resource on salt-loving microorganisms. A PowerPoint presentation introduces viewers to high salt environments, human impact on them, and what we might learn from the extremophiles that thrive in such places. A note-taking page, links to related articles, and a couple of fun extension activities are suggested. Enrich your microbiology unit with this resource!
