Why Do Athletes Drink Sports Drinks? A Learning Cycle to Explore the Concept of Osmosis
Carlsen, Brook; Marek, Edmund A.
Science Teacher, v77 n9 p48-52 Dec 2010
Why does an athlete reach for a sports drink after a tough game or practice? The learning cycle presented in this article helps students answer this question. Learning cycles (Marek 2009) are designed to guide students through direct experiences with a particular concept. In this article, students learn about "osmosis," or the moving of water into and out of cells through semipermeable membranes. (Contains 3 figures and 1 online resource.)
