List of macromolecule
List of macromolecule

  • Proteins

  • Nucleic Acids

  • Lipids

  • Carbohydrates

    • Show the carbohydrates word standing out, jumping

    • Dissolve the other macromolecules in the background, move carbohydrates up to the top

      • Include picture of a food label with finger pointing to carbs, then zoom up to the corner of the page to include room for the definition

      • In text: The main importance of carbohydrates is for energy and structure.

Carbohydrate structure
Carbohydrate structure

  • Carbohydrates are made up of 1 oxygen, 2 hydrogen's, 1 carbon (put as text)

    • Show the elements (the letter itself) with eyes eating dinner together

Types of carbohydrates
Types of Carbohydrates

  • Monosaccharide-, di-, and polysaccharides

  • Monosaccharaides

    • Example: Glucose

    • This is picture of the glucose molecule

  • Disaccharaides

    • Example: lactose. Get a picture of (a cow)

  • Polysaccharaides

    • Cellulose; show a leaf with arms that have bulging muscles

Formation of glycosidic bonds
Formation of glycosidic bonds

  • Dehydration

    • Water molecule is lost forming bonds between 2 monosaccharaides

    • Two balls bouncing onto the screen; they bump into each other, show a formation of a line (bond) in between the balls, and a blue ball with H20 releasing from the two balls

  • Hydrolysis

    -Ball with H20 bouncing onto the screen, hitting the bond that formed, and the bonds break in half


  • General structure


    • What is glucose for?

      • It’s main purpose is for energy

      • Animation for energy: Someone running across the screen.


  • It’s a stored version of glucose that is stored in the liver and muscles that is broken down into glucose when needed.

    • Running man from last screen runs into a treasure chest, lid closes, and it locks


  • It’s a structural component of the cell walls of plants.

    • Fun Fact! Humans cannot digest cellulose.

    • Animation: A hand knocking on a leaf showing rigidity.


  • It’s the primary source of calories and fuel for energy that is found in foods like potatoes.

    • Animation: Mr. Potato Head carrying a fuel can that has energy written across it.

Dietary fiber
Dietary Fiber

  • Dietary fiber is the undigestible portion of plants having two main components: soluble and insoluble.

    • Insoluble cannot dissolve in water.

      • A fiber that does not easily dissovle in the body eg cellulose

      • Animation: The colon with food (i.e., an evergreen tree) moving through the intestines (very smoothly, flowing).

    • Soluble can dissolve in water.

      • Soluble fibers keep cholesterol under control by block synthesis of more cholesterol.

      • An artery that is clogged with plague and the plague will break up and move along.

Fun facts about chitin
Fun Facts about Chitin!

  • Chitin is a polysaccharaide and it is used as surgical thread that can dissolve because of its biodegradability.

    • Animation: A surgeon pulling chi- and –tin together with surgical thread and dissolving.

What we want
What We Want

  • For all of the text, please voiceover the information (in any voice you deem necessary).

  • For the animations, do sounds that are common for the objects in the animation.

  • Please make it look cartoon-y and fun!
