Your Turn

The title and subtitle have already been placed at the top. What is an amoeba?

An amoeba is a microscopic germ that can make people very sick. It is so tiny that you can only see it with a microscope.

If we are going to draw them, we need to know what they look like. What different parts of the amoeba can you see?


Make sure that your name and teacher’s name are written on the back. Then start drawing! Make sure your illustration fills the whole page.
