Product Details

Immerse your students in the science practices with engaging laboratory activities and POGIL! Your students will practice important science skills while learning key biochemistry content with this kit containing a demonstration, a POGIL activity and a lab activity. Students learn to predict outcomes by making models and learn key content through interpreting models and carrying out guided-inquiry lab activities. Complete the learning cycle with claims-evidence-reasoning style analysis prompts.

The demonstration introduces students to the solubility of proteins and how this changes under varying conditions. Students observe the demonstration then work in teams to present a model that explains the changing solubility. Next, students complete a POGIL activity that teaches them about the structure of various biological molecules. In the inquiry lab activity students test food and unknown substances for various biological molecules. The culminating analysis allows students to determine how structure and function are vital to biological molecules.

Complete for eight groups of students.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS1-7: Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism
MS-PS1-1: Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
HS-PS2-6: Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
HS-LS1-6: Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for how carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen from sugar molecules may combine with other elements to form amino acids and/or other large carbon-based molecules.
