Students are challenged to eat some candy as a cell would need to do it. By solving this problem students simulate the cell process called endocytosis. They think about some of the problems that arise when a cell ingests food.
High schoolers plot particle sizes of common airborne materials on a log scale. They read an article on particle size and its relationship to the ability to pass through the lungs, into the bloodstream, and eventually into the cells of the body. It is a terrific lesson for strengthening literacy as well as for increasing awareness of human impact on the environment. Note that the link to the article itself does not work, but it can be accessed through the National Center for Biotechnology Information or with a simple Internet search for the title.
A fill-in-the-blank worksheet regarding transport, this handout would make a great study guide or quick homework assignment to help learners ensure they know the key vocabulary for this topic. There is no answer key, but these are universal concepts found in any high school biology textbook.
A multiple-choice quiz about the transport of substances between cells, this would work well as a pretest and/or post-test. It refers to chapter seven of an unnamed textbook, but it is a Word document, so it can easily be edited.
A note-taking resource for the topic of transport between cells. If formatting is important to you, there are some slight changes you'll need to make to this Word document to make it consistent. 
Mathematicians analyze the relationships between surface area and volume. They conduct Internet research, conduct various experiments, record the data in a spreadsheet, and graph the results and compare the rate of increase of surface area to the rate of increase of volume.
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 explore the different health risks associated with human papillomavirus. In this health science lesson, 10th graders identify different ways to prevent viral and bacterial infection. They research and develop an awareness workshop for their friends and families.
High school science classes will find this video intriguing. Viruses contain genetic information, but there are strong arguments for whether viruses are living or not. Replication versus metabolism and some details about the immune response are covered.
In this autoregulation and capillary dynamics worksheet, learners read through notes, label 3 diagrams, complete 5 equations and 45 short answer review questions.
In this osmosis worksheet, students read about how concentration gradients control osmosis and how this affects cells. Students complete 5 short answer questions based on the reading.
Students examine the human population response to microbial diseases.  For this disease lesson students observe population trends, write about a scientist and evaluate and defend current treatments for infectious diseases. 
Pupils 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.
Learners 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.
Students distinguish between active and passive transport. Students identify key words associated with active and passive transport. They draw and explain the structure f the cellular membrane. They are able to define phospholipid bilayer, hydrophilic, and hydrophobic. Students discuss diffusion which is an example of passive transport.
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.
In this evolution worksheet, students will determine the evolutionary relationships among organisms using cladograms and phylogenetic diagrams. This worksheet has 13 short answer questions and 3 multiple choice questions.
For this language of science worksheet, learners use the list provided to guess the meaning of each of the list. Students apply root words, prefixes, and suffixes to gain meaning of other science words.
In this cell structure worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice question review quiz about the different functions and parts of the cell.
Critical thinking questions accompany a data chart and vocabulary terms about cell structure and function. By completing this two-page worksheet, your class reviews fundamental concepts about the cell. Though it was intended as a chapter reading guide for a specific text, it should be easily adaptable to your curriculum.
