This simple group assignment is what I use to teach students about the various chemical compounds that are found in cells (proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, etc.). I struggled for years on how to introduce students to this oftentimes daunting content area, but finally realized that working in small groups was the best way to go! Students will need access to the basic definitions of the various compounds prior to their brief "presentation" to the rest of the class. This lesson takes about one class period but it can be extended based on the amount of discussion/researched required.
The designed PDF can be enjoyed the way it is, but a straightforward editable word doc is included as well.
