Teaching about cell transport mechanisms in high school biology is a challenge because it is such a visual topic! Students need to really SEE how the processes work. Use this resource to help you teach about osmosis, diffusion, active transport, endocytosis, exocytosis, and facilitated diffusion.
Animations work really well for teaching about these mechanisms but I find my students still need a great visual handout that they can examine, analyze, and keep in their notebooks to study from. So I created these coloring pages and questions to go along with them!
What people are saying about this activity bundle:
"The diagrams are gorgeous! The questions are thought provoking. I love it!"
"Love the diagrams. Simplistic yet explains the difficult concept. Another great activity. "
"For my daughter who is very "artsy", this was a boon to her educational success. She enjoyed coloring the pages and placing in her inactive[interactive] notebook."
Included are the following student pages:
Simple Diffusion Coloring Page and Question Page
Simple Diffusion Application Page: Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide and Question Page
Osmosis Coloring Page and Question Page
Additional Question Page
Osmosis Application Scenarios (4 on 2 pages) and Group Activity Idea
Simple Facilitated Diffusion Coloring Page and Question Page
Complex Simple Facilitated Diffusion Color Page (can be made into a poster)
Additional Question Page
Sodium Potassium Pump 6 Diagram Page and Question Page
Primary and Secondary Transport Coloring Page and Question Page
Additional Full Page Size Sodium Potassium Pump Pages (6) and Group Activity Idea
Endocytosis and Exocytosis Coloring Page and Question Page
Answer keys are also included for all question pages.
I suggest going over a short lesson for each type of transport (maybe include a online animation!) first with your students and then give them a coloring page with questions to reinforce the material. The question page directs them how to color the page and asks them to think deeper about the material. Some questions may require some textbook or online research, depending on how you taught the material.
