These stations give students a fun way to practice the changes in states of matter (freezing, melting, sublimation, condensation, and vaporization). The stations test students' knowledge by having them define, provide examples of, draw, and explain each of the five changes in states of matter listed above.
Whenever students get up and move around the room they are more motivated, work harder, and have a greater focus on the material (especially during long block classes). Middle school students love stations and, once implemented in classrooms, often request them. Stations are a great alternative to worksheets while still accomplishing student practice with content. In addition, you save time and paper by not having to make hundreds of copies of a worksheet. Stations allow teachers to provide extra assistance to ELL and SPED students. Thorough directions for use are provided in the document.
In this resource you will find twenty-two stations, two teacher information pages, blank station cards (so you can easily add stations), a two page copy of the stations for individual students, and a complete key.
What teachers are saying about this resource:
“The stations were a big success; the students enjoyed being able to go around and test their knowledge instead of sitting in their desks the whole period.”
“Thank you for a great resource-- used it when I was in a pinch without the science teacher on my team, sub used the activity with no problems!”
"Love, love, love stations! The conversations between the kids at each station amazes me!"
