5E Instructional Model Plan:

Macronutrient Assembly & Breakdown (Enzymes) 5E Instructional Model Plan

Plan for teaching enzymes using the 5E Instructional Model as a framework

5 - 10 days

Enzymes are protein molecules that have several functions. They can break down other molecules (digest), put molecules together (synthesis), as well as speed up chemical reactions. In this 5Es sequence students will observe enzyme functioning at different temperatures, and model optimal conditions for their enzyme using a simulation. They will then graph their data and use scientific language to describe their results.
