Interactive Lesson





In the study of biochemistry, macromolecules are large carbon containing molecules. 
Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body.  Carbohydrates are made of monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides. Examples of carbohydrates include: grains, bread, and cereal.
Proteins are the building blocks of the cell. Proteins are made of amino acids. 
Lipids are a secondary energy source for our bodies. The monomers of lipids are glycerol and fatty acid.  Healthy sources of lipids include: canola oil, sesame oil, other vegetable oils.
 As as apart of our study of macromolecules, we conducting an investigation to identify
