In this activity, students look at different shapes and measure the surface area (perimeter) of those shapes using rulers. They then determine which cell shape would allow for the most diffusion across the membrane, given the surface areas. There are two versions of the worksheet included: One sheet uses just surface area; The other sheet uses surface area to volume ratios.

NGSSMS-LS1-2
Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall. Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.
