  • Assignment:  Create a sketch note to illustrate one of the four macromolecules:  carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, or lipids. Your task is to include major ideas about the molecule and include at least 10 details. Details can be in the form of images or text. Details should be connected in some way to one of the major ideas. You will also be graded on your creativity in the design of your sketch. Because you have been provided with a sample of a sketch for proteins, choose one of the other macromolecules for this assignment.
