The Cell Membrane
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.
Active Transport in Malpighian Tubules
Students examine the energy dependence of active transport as well as te properties of specificity, competition, saturation, and inhibition. They anesthetize an insect and inject saline into the abdomen.
Facilitated Diffusion and Active Transport
Students discuss the different components of the cell membrane. In this biology instructional activity, students explain how active transport takes place. They create a graphic organizer for the different terminologies.
Movement of Materials Through the Cell Membrane
Students differentiate passive and active transport. In this biology lesson, students discover how substances pass through the cell membrane. They discuss the pros and cons of biotechnology.
Cell Transport & Reproduction
High schoolers are able to define the following terms: Osmosis, Isotonic Solution, Hypotonic Solution, Hypertonic Solution and Passive Transport. They read and complete a Mitosis worksheet, and play a Cell COmputer Game.
Cell Membrane Coloring Worksheet
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.
The Cell Theory
In this cells worksheet, students review how the cell theory was developed. Students review the structure and function of cell structures and active transport. This worksheet has 30 fill in the blank questions.
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.
In this active transport activity, students review the cellular process of active transport including the structures and functions of the cell organelles involved. This activity has 28 fill in the blank statements.
Structure and Function of the Cell/Introduction to the Cell
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.
Guided Inquiry Module on Cell Transport
Students explore processes of cell transport such as osmosis, diffusion and active transport. They use eggs and various solutions to set up various cell transport conditions. They make predictions about the results and monitor the eggs for five days.
Cell Structure and Function
In this cell worksheet, students describe the components that make up the cell and their functions. Students discuss background of cell theory, complete tables, label charts and match functions of cell structures.
ACTIVE TRANSPORT ACROSS THE PLASMA MEMBRANE
Students comprehend that energy is required to move substances across the cell membrane against the concentration gradient.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2003 - Information for the Public
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.
Regents High School Examination: Living Environment 2003
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!
Secondary Active Transport in the Nephron
The details of nephron structure and the renal tubules importance in osmosis, reabsorption, and secretion of solutes and the related concentration of the final filtrate.
Modeling the Cell Membrane
In this membrane permeability learning exercise, 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.
Cell Review Test
Seventh graders engage in a instructional activity that is concerned with the basic structure and function of the cell. They systematically cover the different parts of the cell that includes active transport, organelles, mitosis, and meiosis. The instructional activity is a review before a test.
Review of Cell Structure
In this cell structure activity, students complete 50 multiple choice question review quiz about the different functions and parts of the cell.
Students investigate the function and structures of cells. In this biology lesson, students identify the different parts of a cell using a graphic organizer. They define the cell theory and how it relates to a cell as a whole.
