Cell Membrane Captions


This assignment asks students to examine images of transport across the cell membrane and identify key features such as the phospholipid bilayer, channel proteins,  and receptors.  Students provide a title, such as “osmosis” and create a caption that describes the process being shown.

You can put the images on the projector and ask students to share their captions with the class.  Images show

  • Simple Diffusion
  • Osmosis
  • Facilitated Diffusion
  • Sodium Potassium Pump
  • Endocytosis and Exocytosis
  • Receptor-mediated endocytosis
