Prokaryotes The goal is for you to teach each other about prokaryotes. You will work in assigned groups.

Each group will become an expert in a particular aspect about prokaryotes. You will have three days to complete the project. The work must be presented as a power point presentation. There must be at least four pictures in the presentation and you must have at least four slides (not including title and reference slides) in your work. You must site your source of information (pictures included). At least one of your sources of information must be from a text book. Decide how much time you will allocate for research and project design. Be mindful of your spelling, grammar and use an appropriate font. Each group will present their findings to the class. During the presentations no one will be permitted to work on their project. You will record notes during the presentations. Group I Structure of prokaryotes Guiding questions: What are prokaryotes? What do they look like? What internal structures do they have how do they work? What are general characteristics of prokaryotes? What are the domains that are associated with prokaryotes?

Add any other questions that you think will make your presentation more meaningful

Checklist o There are at least four slides in our presentation o Our slide show has an appropriate title and our names are included o There are at least four pictures in our presentation o The reference is included at the end of our presentation o At least one textbook has been used in the research o Someone read the key points; spelling errors and grammatical errors were corrected. o The work was saved on the thumb drive.
