AP Biology Unit 1 Review: Aligned to the ! Review and study resources for the Chemistry of Life. Works great as an AP Biology Test Review or Study Guide as students work though Unit 1. This resource is designed to help guide your AP Biology students to learn, study, and review all of the topics in Unit 1. Perfect for distance learning or in class!
Students will know exactly what College Board expects them to learn. Each AP Bio Essential Standard is written out on the left side of the paper, with focused, alined, open ended questions on the right side for students to work through.
Chemistry of Life Topics include:
- 1.1 Structure of Water and Hydrogen Bonding
- 1.2 Elements of Life
- 1.3 Introduction to Biological Macromolecules
- 1.4 Properties of Biological Macromolecules
- 1.5 Structure and Function of Biological Macromolecules
- 1.6 Nucleic Acids
Product includes a link to a digital copy of this document. Open it in Google Docs and then make a copy for your own Google Drive to edit as needed!
PLUS you can share with your students to complete digitally!
Includes an answer KEY!
My AP Biology students benefit tremendously from having quick access to the Essential Knowledge standards and these guiding questions. After going through each set, they feel confident they are ready for the Test!
This resource can be used several ways:
- While going through a Unit as a working document, a learning guide, students can add to it as they read though the text book or listen to lecture
- To complete just before a Unit test as a study guide
- At the end of the semester to prepare for the AP Biology Exam
It is helpful to have students begin a Unit by going through the Essential Knowledge itself, highlighting key vocabulary. This gives them a good foundation to grow from, they know what to look for and what is important as they learn about, or review for the Unit.
When my students use these as review, I put them into small groups of three or four. They work together to complete the questions. Then students get into new groups and review their answers. I help guide them and help with questions that they can not come to an agreement on. This also works virtually with small groups of students on Zoom!
Check out this blog post describing all the ways the resource can be used in your classroom.
Save hours of time searching for resources to teach with! Purchase includes a list of links to Arranged and organized for each unit topic. These are resources I use myself, so if you have questions about any of them, just ask! The list includes online interactive activities, video clips, and Lab ideas and classroom activities for your students that are freely available online.

These notes provided an excellent additional resource to help walk the student through the concepts and had ample practice for me to assess comprehension! – Meghan B. November 30, 2021
I love this resource! It has saved me so much time and being in google doc format makes life so much easier. Our district has been doing a variety of virtual and hybrid instruction this year. I ran copies of this, made physical notebooks for my students, and we use it as review at the end of each unit. This has saved me so much time and I highly recommend. My students have also commented on how much they like having comprehensive review materials! Great resource, thank you so much! – Victoria B. February 20, 2021
This resource is a great tool for reviewing the College Board expectations. I used it as a part of an end-of-semester study guide. – Rachael W. January 17, 2021
Excellent comprehensive review. Students appreciate how organized it is and how they can clearly see how the content relates to the standards. – Alisha W. January 6, 2021
