In this lesson, students will create an organizer for information about macromolecules. They are asked to correctly sort the function, examples, and building blocks of the four main classes of macromolecules (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids). Then on the next page they are asked to use the provided pieces and instructions to create simplified models of each type of molecule, and to show the dehydration synthesis. Included are informational reading resources, and a teacher answer key
Students will love showing their knowledge on a digital interactive file. It gives a way for them to create a product, and be more creative in note taking or reviewing.
Why use digital?
- Save time - no printing and cutting
- Colorful and engaging to students
- Lots of options: Can be used instantly on the board, or on devices
- Use technology
- Access Anywhere
Teacher instructions are given for use in either Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
This could easily be done as a unit intro, as a final assessment, using a textbook or using internet resources, or even as a project to complete at home or with a sub if internet access is available.
A very popular lesson with students, because they get a chance to use color, and express their individuality and their knowledge. The directions are simple and straightforward, yet it is an in-depth project.
My students really liked this project, and did excellent work!
