Bacteria & Virus Warm Up 1

Welcome to the 21st Century electronic biology class. This warm-up exercise or bell ringer will concentrate on the vocabulary terms related to prokaryotes (bacteria). If a "fill-in" question appears during this warm-up exercise, please enter all your answers using lower case letters. This warm up allows you an unlimited attempts to improve your learning and test-taking skills. As a bonus, each attempt randomly generates new questions and answers.
