Materials to build a cell membrane

Reserve (A/V, field trips, etc.): HWK:


What are students to learn?

Passive vs Active Transport
Primary vs secondary active transport
Endocytosis and exocytosis

What should students already know?

Diffusion and facilitated diffusion
Functions of the cell membrane
Structure of the cell membrane

Enduring Understanding(s):
Biochemical compounds play important structural and functional roles in cells of all
living organisms.

Overall Expectation(s):
B2. investigate the chemical structures, functions, and chemical properties of
biological molecules involved in some common cellular processes and biochemical
B3. demonstrate an understanding of the structures and functions of biological
molecules, and the biochemical reactions required to maintain normal cellular

Specific Expectation(s):
B2.1 use appropriate terminology related to biochemistry, including, but not limited
to: active and passive transport, covalent and ionic bond, allosteric site, substrate,
substrate-enzyme complex, and inhibition [C]
B2.2 plan and conduct an investigation to demonstrate the movement of
substances across a membrane (e.g., the effects of salt water and distilled water
on a potato) [IP, PR]
B3.6 describe the structure of cell membranes according to the fluid mosaic model,
and explain the dynamics of passive transport, facilitated diffusion, and the
movement of large particles across the cell membrane by the processes of
endocytosis and exocytosis

Lesson: Strategies

(10 min) Complete observations of dialysis tubing

Students will observe any changes present and record
them in their data table.

(20 min) PowerPoint

- Students will follow along taking notes

(10 min) Cellular Transport Demo

(30 min) Build a Cell Membrane

- Students will build a section of a cell membrane
- Phospholipid bilayer
- Proteins
- Channel protein
- Peripheral protein
- Integral protein
- Cholesterol
- *Everything should be labeled
- Materials for building a cell membrane will be laid out on
a table for students to access

- Students will present their models next class in a

gallery walk where they will explain the processes of
active transport diffusion and osmosis to the teacher
