Amazing Growing Bears!!!!

Well, well, well!!!  What an amazing feat our Gummi Bears pulled over the weekend.  The picture above demonstrates how our bears looked after soaking in water for 72 hours.  All of our measurements increased therefore our densities also changed.

We then began some notes on organic molecules (aka. biomolecules, biological molecules, or life molecules).  So far here is what we know!

All living organisms (biotic factors) contain carbon atoms.  Atoms are the building blocks of molecules which in turn are the subunits of all parts of the cell.

There are 4 major groups of biomolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins.

Tomorrow we will finish detailing each of these groups of molecules and begin preparing for a food lab on Wednesday!
