Diffusion & Osmosis doodle notes & activities allow for creativity and a visual representation of the material. Doodle notes help me get a lot of information to students in a way that is not overwhelming. They are engaging and bring notes to life. Get out the gel pens, colored pencils, and glitter pens.
These notes cover diffusion and osmosis and include simple activities to demonstrate this concept that can be challenging. The diffusion activity involves putting a tea bag in water and observing. The osmosis activity involves placing a gummy worm (or other gummy candy) in water and observing. Recording the observations is part of these notes. These activities can be done whole class or by table groups. Items can be often purchased at a dollar store.

This is one page of notes but options are included. I like to cover diffusion and osmosis when covering parts of a cell with NGSS MS-LS1-2. One version of these notes includes a small section on the cell membrane.
