Strange Bugs

As individuals or in small groups, marine biologists research and discuss archaea and their unusual behavior as compared to bacteria. Teach them about the chemical makeup of the cell membrane of these strange organisms. This complex lesson plan requires prior understanding of plate tectonics and hydrothermal vents, lipid biomarkers, and the Lost City expedition.
