Transcript of . Bacteria are single-celled organisms cells that can act li


Bacteria are single-celled organisms cells that can act like plants or animals. They are some of the oldest and most diverse forms of life.
Scientists classify bacteria into three shapes, sphere, spiral or rod .
Your body is full of bacteria, there are actually more bacteria cells in your body than there are human cells. There are more bacteria in your intestine then there are people on earth. Don;t work they are usually friendly and actually help us in lots of ways
Humans have used bacteria to help us in other ways for thousand of years. Bacteria is used to make yogurt and cheese. The flavor of these foods comes from bacterial by products, not exactly bacteria poop but close. Tasty, tasty bacteria poop
Bacteria can produce oxygen for us to breathe – some Scientist estimate I could be as much as half of the oxygen we breathe so next time you see a bacteria in need help out they are helping you
