Chemistry of Life Bundle
A fun lesson to review basic chemistry concepts. These Chemistry of Life resources are a great introduction to your biochemistry and macromolecules unit, with hands-on activities to check student understanding.
A lovely bundle of resources to teach the Chemistry of Life!
There are no-prep Google Slides activities, print-and-go Doodle Notes, and a self-grading Google Forms Quiz.
Together, these make the perfect introduction to your biochemistry / macromolecules unit. The Digital INB activities are fun and interactive, including labeling diagrams, a code cracker, highlighting functional groups, and more! Students will review the basics of chemistry including the structure of an atom, bonding, etc. and will be introduced to organic compounds and their functional groups.
Once students have completed the Google Slides, the Doodle Notes are a perfect review activity or homework. Then assign Google Forms Quiz to easily assess student progress. It’s self-grading, so you don’t have any extra work!
All answers are included, along with handy teacher guides so you know how to use these activities in your classroom.
My Chemistry of Life Bundle includes:
- Student Google Slides Activities: 20 slides of engaging activities, including:
- labeling an atom
- counting valence electrons
- drag and drop comparison table of covalent and ionic bonding
