Students predict the net movement of molecules across a semipermeable membrane, and define what molecules move during osmosis. They conduct experiments to support the statement that all molecules are in motion.

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...

The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this lesson on the path of least resistance, or rather, on conductors and insulators. Using two types of modeling dough, one that conducts and one that insulates, young electrical engineers construct...

Diffusion across a Selectively Permeable Membrane
Lab groups fill a section of dialysis tubing with glucose and starch solutions and suspend it in a water bath. They use iodine as a starch indicator and a glucose test strip to find out if either of the materials crossed the selectively...

Transport Across the Membrane
Take your biology class on an exploration of the inner workings of cells with this multimedia presentation. Looking closely at the structure of cell membranes and the processes of osmosis and diffusion, this resource explains for...

Investigating Factors That Affect Cell Membrane Permeability
Cell membranes and the factors that affect its integrity are studied, with Beet tissue used as the model. A poster to display findings of the permeability of the membranes would clarify understanding and also allow a layer of language...
