Teaching about cell transport mechanisms is a challenge because it is such a visual topic! Students need to really SEE how the processes work.
Animations work really well for teaching osmosis 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 this osmosis coloring page and questions to go along with it!
**This Activity is also available as part of a money saving bundle! Click here!**
Included are the following 5 student pages:
Osmosis Coloring Page (also could be used as a mini-poster!)
Two Osmosis Question Pages
Osmosis Application Scenarios (4 on 2 pages) and Group Activity Idea
Answer keys are also included for all question pages.
I suggest going over a short lesson (maybe include a online animation!) first with your students and then give them this 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.
After completing the coloring page and question pages, you could set up “scenario spots” around the room and have students move between 4 different osmosis-in-real-life scenario and answer 4 deeper thinking questions in groups! The scenarios include: fresh water fish in salt water, salt and snails, plant guard cells and water regulation, and food preservation.
