Instructions: In this activity, you will work to become an expert on the basics of one type of biomolecule. Starting in your “home group,’ you will each be assigned an “expert group” to join (counting off to four is fine). Once assigned an expert group, you will join the others in that group to investigate your assigned category of biomolecules (see below). For your category, you will be looking to fully understand the follow about your group of molecules:
- What is the general formula for the group?
- What are the primary roles of these molecules in living organisms?
- What are the monomers and polymers of the group?
- How are the monomers bonded together? Be sure to include a diagram.
- Give the names of some specific examples of your group of molecules and include where they would be found.
Once you have a good understanding of your group of biomolecules, you will meet back with your home group and teach them about your molecules.
The different groups can choose among:
h) nucleic acids
As these molecules cannot be seen with our naked eyes, plan a way to show them using models.
All your work must be shown on your blogs and will be shared in class.
Marking will be done by your classmates as well.

DUE DATE Tuesday June 19th
Toto – Bauti G – Marco oils
Mora – Lucy H and Nina nucleic acids
Viole – Luli – Rena functional proteins
Achu – Vale – Marina structural proteins
Gonza – Lucas – Titín – Bauti B fats
Juampi – Fermín – Manolo polysaccharides
Olivia – Sofi – Cata mono and disaccharides
Remember we are all going to assess all the work following the rubric.
Your work will be seen and shared at school. And it must also be shared on your blogs.
Remember to state who you work with, and describe all the process:
how you got organized
where you got the info
any drawbacks and how you solved them
any possible improvement for your next project
