Description

This remote learning ready, google slides lesson is both differentiated and allows for student choice. In my lesson series, it takes place after students study the cell membrane and passive transport (simple diffusion, facilitated diffusion, and osmosis.) Student knowledge of these phenomena is assumed.

Students start by reading a short section easy to understand, interesting notes. These notes include 2 pictures and 3 gif animations to aid in understanding. Students then compare concentration gradients to hills in order to help them to understand why moving in one direction requires energy, while moving in the other direction does not. Students then complete a table comparing the processes of diffusion, facilitated diffusion, osmosis, and active transport.

In the next portion of the lesson, students are offered 5 real life examples of active transport. The examples are sorted by difficulty. The two easiest examples (root hair cells and sugars in fruit) involve active transport only. The two intermediate examples (contractile vacuoles in freshwater organisms and mitochondria making ATP) involve active transport plus one type of passive transport. The one advanced example (plant stomata opening and closing) involve active transport and two types of passive transport. Students need to examine and analyze three of the five examples in order to complete the assignment.

Thank you for your purchase, and happy teaching!
