Protist Web Page












        Protists are a diverse group of eukaryotes that include unicellular and multicellular organisms

        Protists can be classified into three groups: protozoans, algae, and molds.

        Protists have a major ecological impact as food sources, decomposers, and infectious agents.



Students will choose any protist they would like and become an expert on that protist. Students will research, compile and organize information on their chosen protist in order to create their own protist fact web page. Web pages will be posted on the bio web page. Students may work in pairs or threes. Once a protist species is taken it cannot be done by others.
