Macromolecules Worksheet


In our Full Biology Curriculum, we use a variety of macromolecules worksheets. One of the macromolecule worksheets that help the students organize the information is our macromolecule graphic organizer. Get  the Macromolecule Worksheet here.macromolecule worksheet

In this macromolecule worksheet students identify the elements, monomer, function and complete a sketch of each macromolecule.

After completing this macromolecule worksheet students are always referring back to it. It offers them a way to organize their thoughts and have a quick reference sheet.

My students love practicing the macromolecules using the macromolecule boxing activity. Check out my post about it here!

Here is a video showing the macromolecule boxes.

Students complete a fun macromolecule sidewalk chalk activity. It certainly beats having them create a poster.

Students love this activity. They just follow our macromolecule sidewalk chalk handout and are able to make excellent drawings. You can also grade it quickly and easily with our included rubric!

A Real “Gallery Walk”

In our Full Biology Curriculum, after students master the macromolecules they examine the stomach contents of a murder victim!

Macromolecule Activity

Do your students struggle with macromolecules?

I developed this macromolecule activity after reviewing our students scores on the state exam. Initially this was the lowest scoring area for students in my school and district (5 high schools). After implementing this activity this  standard was our student’s second highest scoring area.

In this macromolecule activity, students use the macromolecule boxes and the the structure, function, building block (monomer) and pictures each each macromolecule.


In this macromolecule activity students will use the game cards to keep score and compete with each other. In addition there two other activities included to help students build their confidence with these critical bio-molecules.

Macromolecule Boxes

Using the macromolecule activity, an area that was once a weakness for my students on the state assessment became a strength.

This unit and activity is included with our Full Biology Curriculum that you can get here.

Check out the video. See how quickly you will be able to assess your students knowledge of the macromolecules.  Can you spot the errors?

If you like this activity share it with your teacher friends,

You will  also love our Full Biology Curriculum. Every unit is designed by real teachers who are still practicing teachers.

Biochemistry Lab

Biochemistry Lab- A Murder and a Meal

This week my students enjoyed a fun biochemistry lab where they had to examine the stomach contents of a victim to determine where the victim had his last meal. Through this investigations students practiced procedure writing, lab safety and used chemical indicators to test for carbohydrates (glucose and starch), lipids and proteins.

Macromolecule Sidewalk Chalk Activity

This week as the students were learning about macromolucules I decided to do something a little different to get students outside on a beautiful day. I thought it would be fun to have students create sidewalk chalk drawings of macromolecules instead of doing a poster. The students loved this activity. I even saw other students who were not in a Biology class posing and taking pictures with the designs after school.

Macromolecule Graphic Organizer

Macromolecule Graphic Organizer

One of my favorite units to teach is on macromolecules. When I introduce this topic I use this macromolecule graphic organizer to help students organize the information.

After introducing this concept I use one of my hands-on biochemistry boxing activities that I created and have for sale on Teachers Pay Teacher (4 Star rating!). I have several different activities that I use with the lesson. You can get the lesson plan (and others) and printable boxes free by signing up here. You will be emailed a link to the biochemistry boxing activity lesson plan and receive weekly post updates . The lesson plan includes:
-5 printable boxes and instructions for 3 games/activities.
