Product Description
Five experiments are described in two formats - one is designed as a station activity to get students up and about, the other is in group work format for students to do at their seat. Both cover the same five scenarios - the method you choose to use is yours. The 5 stations can become 10 when you make double copies. This is a good way to reduce group sizes.

Students will read each experiment and do the following:

- suggest a possible question the experiment was designed to answer
- suggest a possible, testable hypothesis
- suggest a list of equipment needed
- identify the control and constants
- identify the independent variable
- identify the dependent variable

The station cards contain the experimental scenario. A separate answer document is provided for students to carry with them and complete at each station.

The seat work adaptation has the experimental scenario and accompanying questions on the same page.

The students can work together to analyze the experiments, share suggestions, and critique each other's suggestions. This activity should take approximately 30 minutes for the students to complete.

This is a good review after they have learned the scientific method and have learned how to perform a valid experiment. I use this assignment when reviewing for a quiz, or the state standardized tests, and when reviewing for the semester exam.

I have included station posters you can print and hang to identify each station location.

Answer key and teacher notes are included.
