Investigating Factors That Affect Cell Membrane Permeability
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.
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.
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.
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.
What's Outside the Cell Membrane ?
Students 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.
Membrane Permeability Lab
Biologists investigate cell membrane permeability with this lab activity. They examine live and boiled yeast cells under a microscope and add Congo red to discover whether or not the cells take in the dye. An excellent lab sheet is included along with the background reading and procedure. Investigators draw what they observe and answer analysis questions. This resource will be of great benefit to both you and your class!
A thorough investigation of cell transport is provided when completing the assignment. The first half requires biology class members to answer questions about diffusion and osmosis with the aid of diagrams. Then they fashion an experiment, using dialysis tubing as a model of the selectively permeable cell membrane, to determine whether a starch or sugar molecule is smaller. This is a valuable addition to your biology curriculum collection!
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.
Cells and the Cell Membrane
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 activity.
The Cell Membrane
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.
Osmosis and the Cell Membrane-part 2
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.
Using Bubbles to Explore Membranes
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.
Diffusion Through a Membrane
In this diffusion through a membrane worksheet, 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.
Cell Membrane / Transport Drawing Project
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.
Plasmolysis in Elodea Plant Cells
High schoolers microscopically observe various subcellular components. They determine the effects of different salt solutions on Elodea plant cells. Students explain the major function of a cell membrane and describe its structure.
Memorable Cell Membrane
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.
Molecular Recognition and the Immune Response
Students explore the importance of molecular shape and charge in molecular-recognition. They examine the interaction between antigens and antibodies. Students design and build 3-D visual models to represent molecular-recognition events. They diagram the structure of cell membranes.
In this cells activity, students determine the 2 functions of the cell membrane and describe osmosis. Then students identify diagrams as showing an isotonic, hypotonic, or hypertonic solution. This activity has 2 fill in the blank and 6 short answer questions.
