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.

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
