My Personal Zoo Biology Activity

This activity is designed to introduce students to the microbiome and common human conditions influenced by the microbiome.  Students can work individually or in pairs/small groups (up to 4) and will produce a presentation as a result of their research.  The presentations could be oral in class, a short video, or a Powerpoint presentation.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will understand the concepts of commensalism and symbiotic relationships and the effect of perturbing these communities on human health.

Learning Objectives:

Be able to describe the resident microbiota in selected locations of the human body.

Be able to explain the potential outcomes of disturbing the human microbiota.
