Students build the basic molecules of life with this kit.
- Students Build Three-Dimensional Models of Carbohydrates, Fats, and Protein
- Time Required: Three to Six 50 Minute Class Periods
- Teacher's and Student's Guides Included
- For Individual or Group Study
Students research the chemistry of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Durable, color-coded plastic atoms are assembled, disassembled, and reassembled into 3-D molecules.
Carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins can be completed as a series of lab activities or as separate units. Students can also work independently for enrichment or remedial study. Each module can be systematically subdivided into smaller sections, so students can do the work when most appropriate.
Ordering information: This kit includes a teacher’s guide, student worksheets and guides, and packages containing 15 C tetrahedral centers-black, 13 O double electron atoms-blue, 4 N tetrahedral centers-red, 32 H single electron atoms-white, and 58 covalent electron bonds.
