This lab uses an egg & various substances to model the importance of the cell membrane (allows molecules to enter and leave the cell as needed). It is a fun hands-on lab that provides an awesome model of a cell!
Supplies you will need:
*Corn (Karo) Syrup
*Access to sinks
Students will also practice the steps of the scientific method as well as graphing and measurement in this lab! The lab takes about 4-5 1-hour class periods (with wait time in between for the eggs to sit in the substances).
Experiment steps are VERY detailed in the lab AND a 'Teacher Page' is included with tips and FAQ's. There is no 'Answer Key' as answers vary based on each student group and data collected.
