ATLAS was developed to help fulfill the demand for the shift in science pedagogy, hence: Analyzing and Thinking Like a Scientist; ATLAS is “plug and play” material to make it easy to incorporate and address inquiry based learning. Modern science frameworks are designed to emphasize real world science without route memorization.
The Cell Transport inquiry based science journal is an easy way for students to get engaged in content without teacher lead instruction!
How to use Cell Transport ATLAS: First, read the teacher guide so that you know what is expected of the students, as well as any materials you may need. You know your students best; after reviewing the teacher guide you may decide to skip certain activities in the ATLAS journal, and instead save them for teacher instruction.
Secondly, print the ATLAS inquiry journal for your students to begin the inquiry based learning!
Once the ATLAS journal is complete, move on to teacher-lead instruction (this material is not included).
CELL TRANSPORT ATLAS:
Students inquire about the "Big Idea": Cells have a semipermeable membrane that allow certain molecules to enter the cell or leave the cell to maintain homeostasis; and then move on to making their own model of the cell membrane. There are NO wrong answers in the ATLAS Journals!
MAPS are the Exploratory portion of ATLAS. Included are the following:
1. Cell Transport Model: Students make a model of the cell membrane with more direction and answer questions as they go; this covers diffusion, facilitated diffusion, semi-permeability; and active transport.
2. Application: Students use computers or devices to explore the cell membrane and diffusion more deeply.
3. Predict: Students predict the results of the cornstarch baggie lab to model diffusion.
4. Simulate: Students create a cell membrane simulation and explore the properties of the cell membrane and cell transport.
