This plug and play system is designed to use the same types of science lab stations for every concept that you teach. The information and tasks can be easily interchanged based on the material that is being taught. The teacher or lab assistant simply has to exchange one unit with the next, and the stations are ready to go. It doesn't get much easier.
The 8 plug and play lab stations are set up to teach, reinforce, and challenge every student using a variety of learning styles.
Included in the file:
- Large and small station signs used for every lab
- Best practices and tips for using the Kesler Science Station Labs
- Editable Templates to Supplement Material
- ** NEW unit themed signs
There are 8 total stations for each lab (plus 2 signs for break stations).
Explore It! – This station will typically be a hands-on demo or experiment that allows the student to connect the information through application.
Illustrate It! – This station allows the student to sketch or draw out the concept that they are learning. This allows for better recall and retention of new information.
Read It! – At this station, students will find a short passage relevant to the content and have to answer 3-4 multiple choice questions about the reading.
Watch It! – Students will watch a short video at this station and answer questions relevant to their learning. This station can be set up with class computers/tablets, SMARTboard, or even a teacher's computer.
Organize It! – The students will be working with card sorts or manipulatives at this station. These are included with each of my units.
Write It! – At this station the students will be responding to 2-4 short answer prompts that will allow them to communicate their knowledge in complete sentences.
Research It! – This station will be a website that students will go to learn more information about the topic. Students will perform tasks and answer questions on their lab sheets. This station can be set up with class computers/tablets, SMARTboard, or even a teacher's computer. If no computers are available you can double up one of the other stations and replace this module. Easy.
Assess It! – The students will demonstrate their knowledge of the topic using a series of task cards with more formal questions.
