Alignment of this item to academic standards is based on recommendations from content creators, resource curators, and visitors to this website. It is the responsibility of each educator to verify that the materials are appropriate for your content area, aligned to current academic standards, and will be beneficial to your specific students.
Learning objectives: 
  • Students will be able to remember the four macromolecules.
  • Students will be able to remember important facts about each macromolecule.

Lesson Variations

Blooms taxonomy level: 
Differentiation suggestions: 
  • Students who cannot read at a high school level can be shown pictures in the book that help explain the answer. Give these students less problems to complete, but they need to answer the questions about each macromolecule. Students with an IEP can take the handout home if they need extra time.
