    Macromolecules Quiz
    Lesson Plan
     
    Assessment
    This quiz assesses students knowledge of macromolecules including proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. Students need to know what are organic compounds, metabolism, and monomer and polymer examples of the four macromolecules.

    Worksheet
    Students will fill out a worksheet with information on what they will be tested on. Macromolecules are not discussed in this study guide. Hand out this worksheet before introducing the chemistry of life. Students are to fill in this worksheet while you teach about chemistry. Students then use this worksheet as a central place to study from to prepare for a test or quiz.

    Experiment
    Students experiment with different unknown substances and test if they are composed of carbohydrates. Including monomer sugars (Monosaccharides) & polymer starches (Polysaccharides). The goal of this experience is to give students real evidence for the presence of monomers and polymers in organisms/food.

    Lecture
    This PowerPoint is an introduction to making polymers from monomers (dehydration synthesis) and breaking of polymers into monomers (hydrolysis). The notes also focus on converting one macromolecule into different macromolecule.
