In the Proteins kit, students will read the Proteins leveled reader and discover that a protein is a polymer—a long chain of atoms and molecules linked together. Atoms are the tiny building blocks that make up everything we touch, taste, smell, and see, and atoms link together to make molecules. Protein polymers fold into different shapes, including coils and sheets. The different shapes allow proteins to behave like tiny machines that do most of the jobs inside the body.

The reader is full-color with fun illustrations and includes a pronunciation guide for scientific terms. Students work through a short hands-on experiment in the student activity notebook learning about proteins.Students will use citric acid to coagulate powdered milk and observe what happens. Students are encouraged to repeat the experiment with different types of acid, milk, or to research and explore other ways proteins behave and design their own experiment. The student notebook provides question prompts for students to ask and then answer their own questions about molecules.
