The bacteria and other microbes are classified into Gram-positive & Gram-negative based on a staining technique introduced by Christian Gram.the Staining method will be learnt in higher classes.Examples are most pathogens like Salmonella,Vibrio,Mycobacterium etc.Gram -positive ones include Strepto and Staphylococcus.

Gram-negative bacteria are bacteria that do not retain the crystal violet stain used in the gram-staining method of bacterial differentiation.

Gram negative cell walls contain a thin peptidoglycan layer (without teichoic acids) that is surrounded by a thick plasma membrane. Gram negative bacteria will stain red because the thin peptidoglycan layer is surrounded by the plasma membrane and thus will not stain with crystal violet.Can be decolorized to accept counterstain (safranin) and stain pink or red

Bacteria can be divided into two groups on the basis of the differences in the cell envelopes and the manner in which they respond to the staining procedure developed by Gramm viz., 
1)THOSE THAT TAKE UP THE GRAM STAINS ARE  GRAM POSITIVE and those who doesn't take up are called as GRAM NEGATIVE.
