Unit Title: Life Science

 

Lesson Objective(s):

 

o

I can define and explain the function of the cell membrane by investigating membrane permeability

Type of Lesson:

() Introductory

(X) Developing

(X) Maintaining

() Refining

Essential Question (s): What are the functions of the cell wall and cell membrane?

 

Standards:

 

MS-LS1-2: Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.

Within cells, special structures are responsible for particular functions, and the cell membrane forms the boundary that controls what enters and leaves the cell.

Key Points:

 

Cell membrane

 

Animal cell

Plant cell

Permeability

Organelle

Students have 1 song to get their things ready for class

Daily Journal: Students will complete daily journal prompt and share responses ○ Prompt: Why is
Daily Journal: Students will complete daily journal prompt and share responses
Prompt: Why is it important not to give up?
Students will have 1 song to complete their journal
Students write and share daily journals to clear their minds,
make important connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
1 student will lead discussion for sharing responses
1 student will stamp other peers’ journals
To receive a stamp:
Students must have at least 1 complete sentence
Student should be quiet until the song has ended
Teacher follow-up questions/comments
Dip-stick Qs
Do you think you give up easily?
Do you encourage your friends not to give up?
Do your friends encourage you not to give up?
Recently we have been talking about resilience/persistence because it is
important not to give up especially when we’re completing investigations.
Do we always get the right answer the first time that we complete
the investigation?
Today you have to work hard with your group not to give up

Warm-Up

Students will answer a warm up question independently

Students answer warm up questions to help be to identify concepts that need to be reviewed

Students will have 5 minutes

Students are informed that they will have 1 and ½ songs to complete the journal so to be mindful when the song changes

Solutions will be reviewed

Standard/Objective review Student volunteer reads the standard/objectives, objectives posted on the white board, standard/objectives posted on each slide, objectives in the footnotes of the CW

Teacher explanation of the objective and connection to previous lessons and other courses (math- adding, counting electrons)

Create a success checklist, to identify how we can achieve our objectives

Turn and Talk: Membranes

 

Guiding questions:

 

How do you think cells gain nutrients?

How does it separate the things that it does and does not need?

Pairs will share and post their ideas to the class chart

Students will watch a video about cell membranes

Notes (worksheet below)

 

Students will be given notes on the Membrane

 
 

o

Cell membrane - the semi-permeable double layer of molecules that surrounds every cell

o

Semi-permeable - some molecules can enter, others cannot. Think of it like a guarded gate

o

DIFFUSION the movement of molecules from high to low concentration

o

Macromolecules molecules too large to enter a cell via diffusion

• Student will investigate cell membrane permeability. The ability of an object to pass
through a membrane. Students will have to configure a membrane from straws and a
bubble solution.
• Students will explore 2 concepts about the membrane
o
Cell Concept 1 – Membranes are Fluid and Flexible
Cell membranes are not static, they bend and flex in order to adapt to
changing conditions. This will show how the cell membrane acts as a
liquid and a solid. You will be able to see the flexibility of the cell
membrane and how it is able to keep the shape of the cell without
breaking.
o
Cell Concept 2 – Membranes Can Self-Repair
Attraction between phospholipids allows cell membranes to repair
small breaks in the bilayer. This will show how the lipid bi-layer is
able to re-seal itself after being opened. This property allows for the
cell to be semi-permeable so that nutrients can be imported into the cell
and protein products and waste can be exported out of the cell without
destroying the membrane.

Guided Reading and Practice:

Diffusion across a cell membrane:

Reading and Practice: Diffusion across a cell membrane: The cell membrane is a double-layered structure that

The cell membrane is a double-layered structure that surrounds all cells. It is also called a plasma membrane. The cell membrane’s main function is to control which substances enter or leave a cell. The cell membrane is semi-permeable which means that some substances can cross the membrane and others cannot. Movement of substances in and out of the cell must be tightly controlled because all living organisms require homeostasis – there can never be “too much” water, sugar, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other substances in a cell. Smaller substances can cross the cell membrane via diffusion, which is the movement of molecules from high to low concentration.

1. Review: how would you describe the structure of the cell membrane?

2. In your OWN words, describe what happens to molecules during diffusion.

3. Describe what It means for a cell membrane to be “semi-permeable.”

Bubble (Cell Membrane Lab)

Background: The membrane that surrounds cells and organelles are made of a layer of phospholipids and proteins. We will use soap bubbles as an analogy for the cell membrane.

Cell Concept 1 Membranes are Fluid and Flexible

Cell membranes are not static, they bend and flex in order to adapt to changing conditions. This will show how the cell membrane acts as a liquid and a solid. You will be able to see the flexibility of the cell membrane and how it is able to keep the shape of the cell without breaking.

1. Lift bubble frame out of solution so that a thin film spans across frame.

2. Tilt the frame back and forth and observe the surface of the film.

3. Notice the swirl of color as the light reflects off the film. Molecules in the cell membrane move about in

a similar fashion.

4. Hold the frame by the edges and rotate the sides in opposite directions. Notice the elasticity of the film.

5. Hold the bubble film parallel to the floor and gently move the frame up and down until the surface

begins to bounce up and down.

6. Like the bubble film, membranes can flex without breaking.

Conclusion

1. Describe the cell concept, as you understand it, in your own words.

2. Describe how the soap bubble was used to model the cell concept.

Cell Concept 2 Membranes Can Self-Repair

Attraction between phospholipids allows cell membranes to repair small breaks in the bilayer. This will show how the lipid bi-layer is able to re-seal itself after being opened. This property allows for the cell to be semi-permeable so that nutrients can be imported into the cell and protein products and waste can be exported out of the cell without destroying the membrane.

1. Lift bubble frame out of solution so that a thin film spans across frame.

2. Cover the surface of your finger or extra straw in bubble solution.

3. Slowly push finger or straw through film. Film should allow finger to pass without breaking. 4. Remove

finger from film. Film should repair itself.

5. Try the same procedure with your entire hand.

6. Like the bubble layer, cell membranes can spontaneously repair small tears in the lipid bilayer.

Conclusion

1. Describe the cell concept, as you understand it, in your own words.
