This is a quick and easy activity to remind students about key information on macromolecules.
Objective: Review types of macromolecules, their functions, and ways to identify 3 of 4 macromolecules (Biuret's, Benedict's solution, transparent spot)
Activity: Create a 3D pyramid. Use the pyramid to answer the questions. Research and draw a glucose molecule. Identify it as a monosaccharide or polysaccharide.
Answer 3 questions to cement the key issues of macromolecules. Teacher and students may pose other questions from pyramid. Example, name foods that contain lipids or carbohydrates. What are two types of nucleic acids? What are the functions of each type of macromolecule.
Suggestion: Easiest way to "glue" pyramid is with double sided tape.
I was surprised how students remembered the different categories of macromolecules have creating the pyramid, and seeing pictures/words about each.
Hope it works with your students, too.
