Product Details

What is a carbohydrate? What are the roles of carbohydrates in energy, metabolism and cell structure? Students explore the structure and properties of different types of carbohydrates and learn how they can be identified. By performing four classification tests in sequence on five samples, each carbohydrate’s identity is accurately determined.

Complete for 24 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
