What educators are saying

Great resource! Perfect for reviewing macromolecules for distance learners. I really like that it can be used virtually and a printed version for in class review.
I modified this a little and used the cards in a scavenger hunt and was extremely pleased how well it went. The kids understood everything and there was no need to modify anything content-wise at all

This printable or digital resource is an organic compounds Mix-n-Match Card Sort Game used to reinforce and review the four groups of macromolecules: Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins, and Nucleic Acids. Students will match descriptions and pictures to the correct organic compound group. This resource is editable and is easily differentiated for students of different grade levels and ability levels.

What is included in this product?

  • 4 Large Printable and Editable Compound Cards

  • An edible set of blank cards is included in case you want to add something of your own to the game.

What will the students be doing?

Students will place the 4 larger organic compound cards on a table. They will read an answer card and place that card with the correct macromolecule. The answer cards include pictures and characteristics of each of the groups of macromolecules.

  • Please Note: The digital version is in a "drag and drop" format. In Google Slides, students will place each answer card with the correct organic compound group.

Extremely Low Prep! Once you download the product, you are just minutes away from using this game with your class. Simply:

  1. Print
  2. Laminate
  3. Cut
  4. Play!
  5. You now have a review game that can be used year after year after year.

Highly adapted for students of different grades or ability levels. This particular game is extremely versatile. Make the game as easy or as hard as you want by selecting which “answer cards” you want to use. This game can be tailored to meet the needs of any life science or biology class. For an advanced class, use all of the answer cards. For a younger class, or a lower level class, pick fewer answer cards to use in the game.

Because you tailor the game to meet your needs, this product is suitable for any life science or biology class in grades 7-12.

I have included a student answer sheet. It is an optional component. If you choose, you can use the answer sheet to have the student record each answer statement. The completed answer sheet makes a perfect study guide for the unit test.
