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.
Tenth graders define and identify the cell membrane functions and structures. They study cell membrane properties" lipid bilayer" and explore cells under the microscope. They draw what they see, label any parts they can identify, and try to determine what type of organism it may be in the pond water.
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.
Use coloring to reinforce memory of the cell membrane structure. In addition, junior biologists answer fill-in-the-blank and short-answer questions detailing the function of the cell membrane. This worksheet is five pages long and provides comprehensive coverage of the topic. Assign it as a review of the cell membrane, or even use it as an assessment.
Students 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.
So, this is not technically a worksheet, but rather a chapter of reading material, pictures, and diagrams introducing young biologists to the cell. Cell theory, diversity, size, and shape are described. The internal organization and function of each organelle is detailed. Animal and plant cells are compared in a chart, and then finally, the organization of cells into tissues, organs, and systems is introduced. Create a set of reading comprehension questions to accompany this handout.
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.
The living environment, from the interior of a cell to the complex relationships among populations, are queried in this final examination. Learners look at air pollution maps, diagrams of cells, population graphs, and drawing of cells. They answer multiple choice, graphing, and written response style questions. This is truly an all-encompassing assessment!
For this membrane permeability worksheet, students read introductory information about the cell membrane structure as it pertains to permeabillity and draw a representation of the membrane as they complete a lab. Students record the results cleanliof their modeling activity.
