    About SNAPs Lab Stations Activities

    SNAPs Lab Stations 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. 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

    NGSS4-ESS2-1
    Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. Examples of variables to test could include angle of slope in the downhill movement of water, amount of vegetation, speed of wind, relative rate of deposition, cycles of freezing and thawing of water, cycles of heating and cooling, and volume of water flow. Assessment is limited to a single form of weathering or erosion.
    NGSSMS-ESS1-1
    Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
    NGSS4-ESS3-1
    Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and that their uses affect the environment. Examples of renewable energy resources could include wind energy, water behind dams, and sunlight; non-renewable energy resources are fossil fuels and fissile materials. Examples of environmental effects could include loss of habitat due to dams, loss of habitat due to surface mining, and air pollution from burning of fossil fuels.
    NGSS4-ESS3-2
    Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans. Examples of solutions could include designing an earthquake resistant building and improving monitoring of volcanic activity. Assessment is limited to earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.
    NGSS4-ESS2-2
    Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features. Maps can include topographic maps of Earth’s land and ocean floor, as well as maps of the locations of mountains, continental boundaries, volcanoes, and earthquakes.
