Great lab activity to help students see the difference and importance of these two chemical reactions as they pertail to carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Students cut shapes and manipulate them as simple molecules to see this processes in action. Directions, cut-outs, and follow up questions included. Could also be used in an Organic Chemistry or AP Biology course to review these two reactions that many students find challenging.

I taught grades 9-12 and the following courses: Biology 1, Biology 2, Anatomy and Physiology, Genetics, Zoology, Chemistry in the Community, and Student Leadership before taking some time off to raise my children. All the activities, labs, projects, and review items I have for sale are things I created because I NEEDED them in my classroom and couldn't find anything pre-made that was like it. I found, as a teacher, that the textbook was never sufficient in helping kids get an active and hands-on learn experience. And I am a firm believer that Biology can and should be FUN! The activities I created taught key state standards, while being hands-on, fun or reinforcing. All my tests and quizzes followed key state standards, and almost always are a variety of multiple choice, short answer, essay, matching, and fill-in-the-blank. Thank you for looking and please let me know if you have questions!
