Explaining the Formation of a Cell Membrane

Have you ever heard the saying, “it’s like oil and water, they just don’t mix?” Although this saying applies to several situations, it is true…oil and water do not mix together. But, the cause of these liquids not mixing together is often overlooked. In this lesson, students will explore the polarity of water and how this characteristic applies to the formation of cell membranes. Please rate and comment on the lesson once you’ve done it in your classroom! Thanks!
