Description:

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2007 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. The purpose of this laboratory activity is for student teams to identify macromolecules present in identified and unknown food samples, some of which they may be unfamiliar with, by conducting chemical (indicator) tests using appropriate reagents. They will gain experience in finding relevant information on the Internet, preparing a lab report and preparing a poster for presentation to the class with their findings. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the role each type of macromolecule plays in the survival of organisms.
