Enzyme Puzzle Lab
Purpose: To demonstrate how enzymes speed up biochemical reactions
and to show the importance of enzymes to chemical reactions
Enzymes are present in all living things. Enzymes are unusual proteins
that speed up chemical reactions but ar

Bioaccumulation is when an organism accumulates a material in
its body at a concentration greater than the environment.
What Is Ecology?
Venn Diagram Use the Venn diagram to compare biotic (living) and abiotic (nonliving) factors in the
environment. Use examples from the lesson.

Biomolecule Superhero Project Rubric-Due 9-22/25
*This is a Test Grade
Create an illustration of a Biomolecule superhero and develop a story on a four part
Each part will be checked separately as well as an overall evaluation.
Adhesion: waters ability to stick to other things. This is how water gets up the roots against
Cohesion: Waters ability to stick to itself.
Water is considered a polar molecule because of its polar covalent bonds and the bent

1. Genetics- The study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics
2. Fertilization-the action or process of fertilizing an egg, female animal, or plant, involving
the fusion of male and female gametes to form a zygote.
3. Trait-a genetical
Energy Flow in an ecosystem
Habitat- where an organism, needed energy is found here.

Cell theory states:
All living things are composed of cells. Either unicellular or multicellular
Cell is the basic unit of life
Cells arise from the basic unit of life
What makes up the cells
Prokaryotes- not complex, example is bacteria
Formed through polymerization, large compounds are built by connecting smaller ones
Smaller units are monomers, and join to make polymers
Fast source of energy
Monosaccharides; galactose, fructose,etc.
