A worthwhile presentation on cell transport awaits you! This systematically explains highlights of passive and active transport, the concentration gradient, diffusion and osmosis, and three types of environments that allow osmosis. Using simple, brightly colored diagrams, concepts explained in text are made more clear. Add this to your arsenal of biology curriculum resources.
Your students will love this PowerPoint! Great visuals will support understanding of membrane proteins, cell membranes, active transport, and diffusion. There are a lot of details on each page and all are relevant. The presentation could be split into sections to support a worksheet or to create a self-test paper.
An information-packed eight-page article detailing the history of understanding active transport across cell membranes makes up the bulk of this handout. Two pages of reading comprehension and critical-thinking questions follow. The article is fascinating and illuminates the importance of aquaporins and the ion channels present in cell membranes. This reading analysis would serve as an enriching assignment for your biology class when studying the cell membrane or homeostasis.
Two terrific slide shows are included in this biology resource. The first covers the organelles and general structure of both plant and animal cells. It even explains the cell memebrane proteins: receptors, markers, and channel proteins. The second features cell transport processes. Almost all of the colorful diagrams are clear and offer plenty of detail. There is even an animation demonstrating diffusion. Use this as a support to your lessons on the cell in your high school biology class.
Young scholars explore diffusion and active transport. They observe the effects of eggs in vinegar and predict what will happen when eggs are placed in corn syrup with food coloring. Students complete worksheets which lead them to describe the movement of molecules in and out of cells as they identify osmosis, diffusion, and active transport.
Students distinguish between active and passive transport. Students identify key words associated with active and passive transport. They draw and explain the structure f the cellular membrane. They are able to define phospholipid bilayer, hydrophilic, and hydrophobic. Students discuss diffusion which is an example of passive transport.
