Biochemistry and Macromolecules Unit Bundle Doodle Notes
Bring macromolecules to life with these fun Doodle Notes! These are a perfect addition to your biochemistry and macromolecules unit. With multiple versions and a completed example, they are low prep – just print and go.
Fun and rigorous Doodle Notes for Biochemistry and Macromolecules units. These are low prep and easy to use!
This unit of Doodle notes covers a basic chemistry review, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, properties of water, and enzymes. Custom clipart brings each biological molecule to life and helps students to remember the concepts. My Doodle Notes are low prep and make differentiation easy, with both open response and scaffolded fill-in-the-blank versions. They are a great resource for test prep, or a homework assignment to review learning.
These Doodle Notes are suitable for High School Biology and AP Biology courses.
Each set of Doodle Notes includes:
- An open response version for higher challenge
- A scaffolded version for support with fill-in-the-blanks
- Black and white versions, perfect for coloring in
- Color versions – use with a PDF markup tool, e.g Kami
- A handy how-to-guide to get you started with Doodle Notes
