Macro-molecules - 7th Grade
Transcript of Macro-molecules - 7th Grade
Page 15 in ISN (page 97-101 in textbook)
On page 14, describe/explain the Macromolecules lesson in your own words. You can use charts and/or diagrams.
What are cells made of, and is it food?
Use of colors
By: Mr. Begoyan
Cells are the building blocks of life, nothing alive is smaller than a cell.
Yet cells are made of smaller parts, smaller building blocks.
These building blocks are not alive, yet everything alive is built from them.
These building blocks are known as Macromolecules (Macro = Large)
Smaller than a cell, not alive, yet very important!
-Short/medium term energy storage.
-Simple: Sugar (glucose, sucrose, fructose)
-Complex: Starch (potato, grain, bread, pasta)
1. What is a Macromolecule?
2. All life on Earth is based on this element ____________.
3. What does it mean to be an organic molecule?
4. List the 4 types of Macromolecules.
5. What are the primary and secondary functions of Carbohydrates?
Questions (no you don’t have to write this...)
-Involved in all cell functions.
-They are little workers that make everything happen (fix, repair, transport, make, fight).
-Biological catalysts (enzymes).
-Long term energy storage.
-Structure: primary component of cell membranes.
-Cushions body parts.
-Hormones (chemical messengers).
-Makes up DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (Ribonucleic acid)
-Made of individual parts known as nucleotides.
-Each nucleotide is composed of a
, and a
All life on Earth is Carbon (C) based.
Anything that contains Carbon is an organic molecule.
There are four types of biological Macromolecules:
Carbohydrate, Protein, Lipid, Nucleic Acid.
All four contain large amounts of
, and thus are all

1. What are the primary and secondary functions of Proteins?
2. What are the primary and secondary functions of Lipids?
3. What are the primary and
secondary functions of
4. Nucleic Acids are made
of individual units called
