Biochemistry and Macromolecules Unit Bundle Google Slides
Let me help a little with your lesson planning. These Biochemistry and Macromolecules Google Slides are ready-to-use and virtually no prep – just assign to your Google Classroom! They are packed with engaging activities, and every lesson comes with a self-grading Google Forms Quiz.
Biochemistry and macromolecules can seem a bit “dull” or “dry” – these Google Slides bring this unit to life for your students!
Colorful and interactive, the Google Slides are packed with fun activities designed with custom clipart. Your students will be engaged and active in their learning. Every lesson comes with full answers and a self-grading Google Forms quiz. Tasks are clearly explained, along with digital tips so you can focus on teaching. A teacher guidance document will take you through everything you need to get started.
These are no prep resources – simply assign to Google Classroom.
