DiffusionQuick View


This resource is aimed at KS3 students and is useful as it covers the following learning objectives... State that particles move through fluid by diffusion Describe diffusion in terms of the particle model Explain how diffusion occurs in terms of the particle model Suggest how the rate of diffusion may be affected There are differentiation opportunities for lower and higher ability students (check the green challenge questions). I have also included feedback boxes, in which you should put students names to keep individuals engaged and ready to learn and feedback.

Osmosis, diffusion and active transport

The lesson make much use of AFL and directs students to the most appropriate task. The lessons starts by describing different situations that diffusion takes place in. The understanding is then assessed by a hinge question with differentiated task as the outcome for this. The lesson moves on to discuss osmosis before assessing understanding and directing students to the most appropriate task. Active transport is reviewed before learning is concluded with an exit ticket.

This lesson is designed for the new AQA (9-1) GCSE. It includes a full PowerPoint presentation which goes through diffusion with interactive visuals and then gives examples of diffusion in nature. I combined the lesson with an aerosol demonstration and a potassium permanganate practical but there are lots of different ways to do it including a full investigation if you wanted to. This lesson also incudes a homework activity which includes a 6-mark question about the factors that affect the rate of diffusion and comes with an information sheet containing text and graphs. This homework could be used in class or could easily be adapted into various other activities.

This is a resource primarily for year 7 students but can also be used as revision or to test prior knowledge on diffusion. There are options for extended writing for higher ability students and more assisted help such as filling in the gaps for lower ability students. It would be useful to bring into class a solid, liquid or a gas...especially a perfume or air freshener.

A concise lesson presentation (25 slides) and associated worksheet that goes through the key details of the method of movement, diffusion. The lesson begins by using the analogy of a bouncer at a nightclub letting some people in but not others to show how cell membranes are partially permeable. Moving forwards, students are introduced to the term "diffusion" and shown how this moves from a high concentration to a lower concentration and therefore with the concentration gradient. Students are challenged to apply their new found knowledge of diffusion to the example of oxygen moving from the alveoli into the blood. Students will understand that the rate of diffusion can be increased in a number of ways and a quick competition is used to get them to identify which of three examples will diffuse fastest and then to try and explain why. There is a set homework included with this lesson. This lesson is designed for GCSE students but is appropriate as an extension for KS3 and a recap for A-level students.

Two different practical activities for demonstrating diffusion are explained on this worksheet, where pupils must exaplin their observations of each activity.
