Product Description

About SNAPs Lab Stations Activities

SNAPs Lab Stations Activities require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. They are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. Each station activity promotes skills so to develop students into proficient and competent scientific thinkers.

SNAPs lab activities have five components:

Science Skills Station to develop science skill proficiency

Narrative Station to build science literacy

Assessment Station to evaluate learning and understanding

Problem-Solving Station to foster engineering design

Synthesis/Summary Project to inspire higher-order learning

Important Notes:

• Download the FREE SNAPs Lab Stations Setup Guide for best practices, signage and editable grading rubrics

• Download a FREE SNAPs Lab Stations Activity to learn more about my SNAPs labs

• Save 40% with the Integrated Science Lab Bundle

A description of the activities at each station in this particular lab is detailed below.

Types of Mixtures Lab Learning Objectives

1. Compare and contrast homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures.

2. Classify examples of solutions, suspensions and colloids.

3. Determine if a physical or chemical change occurs when substances are combined to form a mixture.

4. Evaluate how engineers apply the engineer design process to make synthetic mixtures.

Science Skills Station

Students will mix different substances together and classify those mixtures as heterogeneous mixtures, solutions, suspensions or colloids. Students will determine whether physical and/or chemical changes occurred when the substances were mixes.

Narrative Station

Students will read an informational text about homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures. Students will also read about different types of heterogeneous mixtures.

Assessment Station

At this station, students will answer questions about key terms and ideas relating to mixtures. Students will have to employ lower, mid and higher order thinking skills to answer these questions.

Problem-Solving Station

Students will investigate how engineers apply the engineer design process to make mixtures, such as E85 fuel, stainless steel and intravenous fluid. Students will research the problems solved by these mixtures, how well the mixtures solves the problem and the benefits and limitations of the mixtures.

Synthesis/Summary Project

Students will have a choice of 11 projects. Refer to the SNAPs Lab Stations Best Practices and Setup Guide for directions and suggestions on how to conduct the project.

NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS

This laboratory satisfies NGSS 5-PS1-4. It combines the three dimensions of science learning - science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts - to meet the standard. This lab also makes interdisciplinary connections to STEM, Math CCSS and ELA CCSS to build the appropriate skills.
