Topic: Transport in Cells
Description: Students already that osmosis is the process by which there is a net movement of wáter molecules from an area of high wáter concentration to a low wáter concentration through a selectively permeable membrane.
Cell loses wáter in hypertonic solutions, cell contents move away from cell walls as vacuole shrinks. Cell becomes flaccid (limp). Cell gains wáter in hypotonic solutions, vacuole increases in size, pressing cytoplasm against cell walls. Cell becomes firm.
1. Introduction: Students placed in groups of threes and given a set of letters to unscramble to identify the topic of the lesson ‘Transport in Cells’.

Osmosis with instructions to listen and give unfamilar terms Heard in the video.
