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.

Osmosis and Plant Cells
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.

Osmosis and Diffusion Lab: Honey I Blew Up the Bear
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.

Cell 5 Diffusion and Osmosis
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.

Not only will beginning biologists write the answers to questions on this activity, 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.

Modeling the Cell Membrane
In this membrane permeability worksheet, 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.

Osmosis and Passive Transport
High schoolers model and observe passive transport as related to cell membranes. In this scientific inquiry activity, students investigate the effect of solute concentration on the passive transport of molecules across a semipermeable membrane.

Biology pupils take the cell membrane apart piece-by-piece as they complete this worksheet. They describe the structure of the cell membrane and explain the processes that transport materials across it. This phenomenal resource even has a diagram of a passive transport demonstration for learners to analyze.

Six beakers have been drawn with varying concentrations of solutions. In each beaker is a cell, which also has an assigned concentration. For each, young biologists determine the direction of water movement and what will happen to the cell over time.

Cell Size and Shape; Diffusion and Osmosis Processes
Use salmon eggs as a cell model for demonstrating the movement of water over concentration gradients. Junior scientists examine the same process microscopically with an onion cell. They use a thistle tube and a semipermeable membrane to discover osmosis.

AP: Chapter 8: Membranes
AP biology buffs dismantle the mystery of the cell membrane by explaining its structure and function. They decipher membrane fluidity, define the roles of membrane proteins, and analyze a diagram of a selectively permeable membrane experiment.

How Big Can a Bee Be?
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.

Regulating Internal Environment
The many mechanisms of maintaining internal conditions of an organism are detailed here, with clear examples of how separate evolutionary paths have led to different conclusions. The slides are concise and attractively designed with information about diffusion, osmosis, waste diposal, and hormone feedback loops.
