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 membranes and the factors that affect its integrity are studied, with Beet tissue used as the model. A poster to display findings of the permeability of the membranes would clarify understanding and also allow a layer of language arts preparation. Multiple online resources are linked to, and ideas suggested for extension activities.
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.  
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 investigate the properties of cell membranes by isolating the membrane surrounding chicken eggs. They set up an experiment by placing eggs in a vinegar solution for three days. A powerpoint lecture emphasizes the structure of the plasma membrane. This is part one of a two part lesson.
In this cell membrane worksheet, students use the Nelson Biology text to complete the blanks. Students then sketch and label two figures found within the text.
Students participate in a review of diffusion and the basic properties of the cell membrane before exploring the process of osmosis in a lab activity. Using shell-less eggs that have soaked in various solutions, students make measurements and collect data on the changing sizes of their eggs.
Students experience a hands-on activity that simulates cell membrane structure and function. They explain the structure of the cell membrane and the unique properties does it has.
Students set up a cell membrane with the material provided by their teacher and then arrange beads properly to show how the sodium and potassium ions are arranged. They then make a model representing the axon of a neuron.
In this diffusion through a membrane activity, students fill in the blanks to complete 27 statements about cell membranes, the movement of molecules across the cell membrane, concentration gradients and diffusion.
Students use Internet activities and videos to understand the types of cells, their membranes, and the way that they reproduce. In this cellular biology lesson, students use the Internet to view videos and complete activities. They investigate single-celled organisms, the cell membrane, and mitosis.
Students describe and illustrate the process of diffusion in selelctively permeable cell membranes. They are asked to respond to what they think will happen when food coloring is dropped in a bowl of water. Other activities will be conducted too.
Biology buffs illustrate the workings of the cell membrane when they complete this checklist. Not only do they draw the structure, they also draw gradients and mechanisms for the transport of materials across the membrane. Your advanced biology learners will rise to the great expectations of this assignment.
Young scholars investigate the components of a cell membrane. In this cell membrane lesson plan, students build a cell membrane model using toothpicks and candy to represent the parts of the membrane including the phospholipid bilayer and the integral proteins. The class discusses the structures and functions of the cell membrane and the components of the cell membrane. Young scholars design their own unique cell membrane to build with materials brought from home for the next class.
Students use high powered dissection microscopes to dissect and examine frog embryos as well as see balls of cells that were produced by rapid division. The concept of mitosis links to the lesson.
Learners examine the cell coats (matrix) of chondrocytes and fibroblasts and observe these cells actively exclude particles which are released around them. They observe the function of the cell membrane as a gatekeeper as it prevents large particles from approaching the cell boundary.
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.
Lab groups fill a section of dialysis tubing with glucose and starch solutions and suspend it in a water bath. They use iodine as a starch indicator and a glucose test strip to find out if either of the materials crossed the selectively permeable membrane into the water. This classic experiment is laid out in a way that keeps biologists on target and engaged in the learning experience. Photos and diagrams help make the concepts clear.
As an anticipatory set, biologists listen to the story of Ruth Patrick, a scientist who used algae to detect water quality. They observe a demonstration of osmosis and diffusion. In their lab groups, they place Elodea stalks in saltwater, then examine the condition after five minutes. Notes are provided to guide you in explaining what happened and an activity sheet is provided for learners to record responses. You receive loads of support for teaching cell transport through this resource.
In this cell learning exercise, 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.
