Brittany,
Hi, you should be able to order paramecium from Carolina Biological Supply
- I don't have the address off hand, but your biology teacher should.  If
not, let me know and I will try to find it.  By the way, paramecium are
protazoa, not bacterium.

I am familiar with Curt Lively's work, and I believe that the duck
excretion contained either nematodes (small worms), or their eggs, (rather
than bacterium) which then infected the snails.

 I want to do the same with

I'm really impressed that you are doing this project as a high school
student!  Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.  I also
encourage you to contact Dr. Lively before you begin your project.  He is
very friendly and might have some useful suggestions concerning your
project.

Good Luck!

Diana
