We have just started Unit 3 in Natural Science. This is a very easy and short unit about Fungi, Moneras and Protista.
If you want to get a better mark, you have the opportunity to make one of these individual projects:
- Viruses vs. Bacteria
- The history of Penicillin
You will have to carry out an experiment in your house, to grow mould in slices of bread. Here you have the instructions of what you have to do. You’ll have to write a report about your experiment and present it on DN A4 format.
VIRUSES vs. BACTERIA
You will have to investigate about viruses and bacteria and create a Venn diagram comparing them on a DIN A4 format.
THE HISTORY OF PENICILLIN
You will research about who, why and how Penicillin was discovered, the consequences of its discovery and how do we use it nowadays. You’ll write the story on a DIN A4 format.
You have to include your project in your folder and had it out the day of the exam.

I’ve prepared a video to show you how your notebook should look like. It is MY Natural Science Notebook, which I did while you were working on yours.
- There are two things that are different:
- My GLOSSARY is longer, because I decided to make you write less words.
- You don’t have the OUTLINE yet, we will do it on Monday.
This is what you must have on your notebook when you give it to me the day of the exam:
- FRONT PAGE: name, group, subject, title and glossary.
- BACK COVER: outline
- CELLS outline
- ACTIVITIES 1, 2 and 3 from page 9
- The Organization Of Living Things SUMMARY
- The microscope DRAWING (labeled)
- ACTIVITIES 1 and 3 from page 13
- FINAL ACTIVITIES from page 15 (1, 2, 3 and 4)
Here you have the video. Enjoy! (And do not laugh, pelase…)
