This unit includes resources, such as labs and PowerPoint presentations, on cellular transport for high school biology students. The PowerPoint covers the movement of materials across a membrane, the osmosis lab is an exercise using eggs, and there is an answer sheet for an Elodea plasmolysis lab.

This unit is part of the Developing Biology course.
