A lively presentation presents general facts and history of nucleic acids in a note-taking format. Every slide contains colorful photos or graphics to illuminate and engage. Biology aces learn about the function and structure of these essential molecules. After showing this presentation, have them create models of the double helix out of various craft materials.
Students learn about the four biochemicals that are important biologically. In this biochemicals lesson plan, students identify the four major groups of biochemicals including carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. They are given notes and demonstrations for each type of biochemical and complete a"4 groups chart". They complete the instructional activity with a short quiz on each biochemical.
This is a polished presentation of the nucleic acids. It is unique in that it examines both the genetic material and the energy molecules. Usually these are addressed separately even though they are both nucleic acids. This approach is most appropriate for your biochemistry buffs. It is straightforward, educational, and contains explanatory diagrams. It earns an A+!
A concise and instructive presentation on nucleic acids will be a valuable teaching tool in your chemistry or biology classes. Beautiful diagrams clarify the structure of nucleotides in DNA and RNA and the double helix arrangement of the DNA molecule.
Explore the roles of RNA with this PowerPoint presentation. Viewers will learn about messenger RNA, transfer RNA, and ribosomal RNA. You will appreciate the time and thought put into preparing this concise presentation as you use it to teach your young biologists about this vital nucleic acid.
This sequence of slides covers each main macromolecule that is involved with human structure and function. The history of nucleotide research and the way that they are formed is summarized, a diagram accompanies the explanation. The main examples of their function are listed.
In this chromosome worksheet students complete a crossword puzzle by answering questions on DNA, nucleic acids, nucleotides and RNA.  
Tenth graders create paper blocks about organic compounds. They include a picture, location, job, and definition of each compound.
Biochemistry scholars will be well prepared for an exam on biomolecules after completing this concise assignment! There are 75 short-answer questions about the chemical makeup, functions, and relationships between organic molecules. Learners will address carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and enzymes. Have them complete the activity and use it as a study guide.
Ninth graders examine the structure and function of biomolecules. In this food molecule lesson, 9th graders will examine various  types of biomolecules such as  carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. They will analyze nutrition facts on food labels and draw the respiration and photosynthesis stages of biomolecules.
Biology scholars are asked to define and explain, to complete a chart, and to fill in the blanks for seventeen macromolecule questions. Easy for pupils to read and comprehensive in content, this is a resource that you will want to use. Assign it as homework or a quiz.
Amateur biologists examine the macromolecules that are foundational to life: proteins,  lipids, and carbohydrates. This worksheet is composed of five pages of questions and plenty of space to write answers. Learners will explore such topics as the function of nucleic acids, differences between saturated and unsaturated fats, and the roles of different polysaccharides. This makes a handy homework assignment for your AP or college biologists.
Students explore the basics of DNA and its history.  In this DNA instructional activity students extract DNA from fruits and understand how it is used in forensics.
In this molecules learning exercise, students read a 1 page article on molecules and then answer 10 true or false, multiple choice, short answer and/or fill in the blank questions referring to the article.
For this biologically important molecules worksheet, students fill in the blank with information about carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Students also make notes about nucleic acids.
In this biological compounds worksheet, learners compare and contrast carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins. This worksheet has 8 matching, 5 fill in the blank, and 2 short answer questions.
Introduce viewers to the organic compounds with this presentation. It does not contain much information; it is mostly comprised of bullet points for each topic: monomers, polymers, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. No notes are included, so you will need to design your own lecture to go with the slide show. 
In this nutrient biochemistry instructional activity, students complete the blanks with information about nucleic acids and the process. Students also draw a figure referenced in the text given.
In this nutrient learning exercise, students compare the chemicals that make up living things: vitamins and minerals, lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids. This learning exercise has 2 drawings and 32 fill in the blank statements.
For this DNA worksheet, students identify the different parts of the DNA and color them. They complete 16 short answer and fill in the blank questions on DNA.
