This resource outlines and summarizes 8 pages of a text on actions of hormones on target cells. The handout portion includes vocabulary clarifications, color diagrams, and important information; however, there are also references to online quiz questions, which are not included. The resource ends with 17 study questions that refer to the given information. You could use this as a study guide for a test.
Fifth graders determine how cells coordinate into body systems in this week-long lesson on human cells and body systems. The week begins with a video from Discovery Education, then the class uses the rest of the week to read about, research and discuss body systems, culminating in PowerPoint presentations where each group presents on different body systems. Some good ideas for activities and discussion topics are introduced in this lesson, but it needs to be supplemented as links do not work.
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 instructional activity.
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!
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!
