Students model and observe passive transport as related to cell membranes.  In this scientific inquiry lesson, students investigate the effect of solute concentration on the passive transport of molecules across a semipermeable membrane.  
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 membrane permeability worksheet, learners 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.
Students 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.
Aside from obviously being a photocopy and a couple of minor formatting problems, this is a laudable lab activity for exploring osmosis. Biology groups cut potato chunks into equal volumes and record the mass of each. They place two chunks into each of three different concentrations of salt solution and later record the new masses. Analysis questions help lab mates think critically through the inquiry. This simple, straightforward activity will enlighten learners about this form of passive transport.
Learners differentiate passive and active transport. In this biology lesson plan, students discover how substances pass through the cell membrane. They discuss the pros and cons of biotechnology.
Beginning biologists explore passive transport through two demonstrations and a hands-on inquiry. Spray air freshener from one spot in the classroom and have class members raise their hands as the scent reaches them. Also, place a teabag into a clear glass container of hot water for them to observe. The accompanying activity involves individuals soaking a bear-shaped gummy candy in distilled water overnight, comparing before and after measurements of mass and length. This resource would support your life science lesson on passive transport.
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.  
Students explain how osmotic pressure affects movement of water molecules. In this biology instructional activity, students design an experiment to observe osmosis. They discuss their results in class.
In this cell structure worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice question review quiz about the different functions and parts of the cell.
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.
Learners 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.
In this cellular transport activity, students review the process of osmosis and compare passive transport and active transport. This activity has 12 matching questions.
Students observe diffusion of glucose through a cell membrane and research the function of chromium picolinate in glucose uptake into a cell. They conclude and understand the role of insulin and chromium picolinate in the uptake of glucose into a cell.
Students discuss the different components of the cell membrane. In this biology lesson, students explain how active transport takes place. They create a graphic organizer for the different terminologies.
Students draw a diagram to show the fluid mosaic model of a membrane. They explain how hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties help membranes hold their shape. They identify the functions of different cell membrane proteins as well.
In this biology word search worksheet, 8th graders will find and circle eight words or phrases that have to do with cells and cell processes.
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. 
Not only will beginning biologists write the answers to questions on this worksheet, they will analyze diagrams of what happens in different situations considering cell transport. Although you will find the text a little blurry and one of the diagrams much lighter than the rest of the print, the approach taken by this resource makes it worthwhile. Simply darken the U-tube diagram and then assign this to your biology class as a review of diffusion and osmosis.
Students explore principles governing diffusion and osmosis. Students perform a dialysis tubing experiment. They obtain core samples of potato in varying concentrations of sugar-water to measure water potential of the potato cells. Data is collected and analyzed by using the Texas Instruments 82 graphing calculator. Students graph results.
