Teenagers love talking about food - and this lesson gets them applying those conversations to biological macromolecules. Students identify the composition of common foods and later plan a menu around a popular dietary fad of their choice.
Your purchase includes a 35 color slide PowerPoint, student notes handout, menu foldable, and handouts describing several different popular diets. Provide input over new content with the PowerPoint to guide you; focus student attention with fill-in-the-blank notes; give students a visual understanding of a macromolecule with construction activity; encourage real-life application of the content with the menu project. I teach this lesson in one ninety minute class period, and you could also use it for two forty minute class periods.
