This guided inquiry lab is designed for high school Biology students who have no prior experience with molecular modeling. Students will use molecular model kits (not included) to create 3-D models that illustrate the ways carbon combines with other atoms to form the essential macromolecules of life.

The lab includes the creation of 11 molecules using a variety of single, double and triple bonds. The models increase in difficulty to the point of creating carbon rings.

This makes a great addition to a Chemistry of Life unit that discusses carbon, lipids, proteins, carbohydrates or nucleic acids.
