Lab Station Description
These fully editable, Biology Lab Station Activities are meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each individual lab station resource centers around a specific topic and includes 7 lab station activities for your students to complete. Each not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students knowledge (provide an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.), but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids will learn through assessment. Each station comes with a description card as well as a reading, questions to answer, etc. where needed. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you're all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.

This lab station activity bundle includes:
Cell and the Cell Theory
The Human Digestive System
The Circulatory System
The Human Respiratory System
Mitosis and the Cell Cycle
Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis
Cancer: Cell Division Gone Wrong - Volume I
Cancer: Cell Division Gone Wrong - Volume II
Cell Membrane and Transport
Hearing and the Human Ear
The Human Eye
Genetic Material: DNA and RNA

Energy Flow In Ecosystems

This activity is a wonderful complement to my Biology Complete Unit where many of these topics are provided as full lessons.

How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.

Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.

Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.

Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.

Station 4: Rest Station - students can use this time to catch up on work they didn't have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.

Station 5 - Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.

Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.

Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.

Station 8 - Rest Station.

Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers.
