Product Description
An EGG-Cellent Experiment Lab Handout for Middle and High School Students to Investigate Osmosis, Diffusion, and Tonicity

When analyzing my student's End of Course assessment scores the year before last, I saw that they missed more questions than any other type on tonicity. My vow was to make more activities the next year to try to help them understand this somewhat tougher concept. This activity is one of them.

Using the egg to investigate osmosis is one of my all time favorite lab activities. I remember it even from high school, so it must have taught me something. I designed this lab activity handout so that my students could share the same lab experience that I did.

The printout will include a detailed description/checklist on what your students can do to investigate the movement of water through a selectively permeable membrane of an egg. At the end, I hope you see results just like I did.
