Cell Biology Learning Activities
Locate and Identify Groups of Compounds
Students act as biochemists as they study the molecules that are essential to cell activity. This activity covers testing of carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, and lipids and why each molecule is important to the life of the cell. The background material also gives an overview of nucleic acids and the differences between plant and animal cells. It includes enough materials for 15 setups.
