This fantastic pack for KS2 on Micro-Organisms will help teach primary children that there are many very small organisms which can cause illness or decay, or can be used in food production and that micro-organisms feed, grow and reproduce like other organisms. It includes references to the work of Edward Jenner and Louis Pasteur and shows pictures and photographs of how micro-organisms affect food, how a banana decays, what a compost bin looks like when it is decaying and how yeast works.
