The Biological Mysteries of Kimchi (Mandarin)

Kimchi is a spicy pickled cabbage dish eaten in Korea and China. Using Kimchi as a teaching vehicle, this lesson is about how plants absorb and lose water. The lesson has three main learning/teaching goals. The first main learning goal is to understand that plants absorb and lose water through cells. The second is to learn how to observe the plasmolysis of plants. The third one is to understand the principle of osmosis in plant cells. As a prerequisite to this lesson, students should know about the structure of plants and the concept of diffusion. This lesson is about 40 minutes. The instructions for all the experiments in this lesson can be downloaded off the BLOSSOMS webpage.
