  • StandardsNEW

In this MODEL science station, students read about echolocation and draw a model of how it works with dolphins. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

This MODEL station is also available in a larger bundle of 8 stations at a discount of 35%. Instead of paying $2, you only pay $1.50 per station for 8 stations on Information Processing

Differentiated Responses

Each station includes four different ways to respond to the experience at the station: short answer questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, task cards with short answers, task cards with multiple choice. All the variations are similar to one another. Choose the format that best fits your classroom and students. Students are encouraged to use their science journal, but worksheets are included as well.

Information about the full Information Processing bundle:

Information Processing: Making Sense of the World Science Stations for Fourth Grade Next Generation Science Standards include 8 different science stations where students deepen their understanding of sensory systems, including anatomy (structures and parts) and physiology (how the parts function).

The focus is on 4-LS1.D and includes concepts such the sense of sight, sense of taste, sense of hearing, sense of touch, structure and function of the human eye, ear, tongue, and skin, as well as the extraordinary sensory systems in animals, including echolocation.

By working through this set of stations, students will gain a robust understanding of the properties of structure and function. The Engineering Standards for fourth grade are also incorporated into this set of stations. See the preview for more details on the how the four physical science Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) are combined and how the engineering standards are incorporated.

Stations Include

Vocabulary Cards in two formats with and without pictures.

Watch - Students watch one of two videos and then answer questions about the videos. Videos include the sense of sight and sense of taste.

Play - Students play a video game and learn about the sense of hearing and the brain. Students answer questions related to the video game.

Investigate - Students read about the sense of hearing and conduct an investigation using tuning forks. Students then answer questions to reinforce the concepts learned.

Diagram - Students read about the structures and functions of the human eye. They created a diagram of what happens in the eye in different levels of light. Students then answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Read a Passage - Students read about extraordinary sensory systems in animals. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Model - Students read about echolocation in dolphins and draw a model of how it works. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Explore - Students read about the sense of taste and conduct a taste test. Students answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Sort - Students read about the sense of touch then sort pictures of different objects into categories according to the type of touch: mechanical, pain and temperature. Students then answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Some stations include two or more activity choices and extension activities.

Each station is designed to last about 15-20 minutes. Students may do one a day for 8 days, 2 a day for four days, or any format that works for your classroom. Because there are additional activities for the Watch and Play stations, you can offer those as a choice within that station or offer them as an early finisher station, as well.

See the preview for additional information and details.

Additional Science Stations are also available.

NGSS4-LS1-2
Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways. Emphasis is on systems of information transfer. Assessment does not include the mechanisms by which the brain stores and recalls information or the mechanisms of how sensory receptors function.
NGSS4-LS1-1
Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction. Examples of structures could include thorns, stems, roots, colored petals, heart, stomach, lung, brain, and skin. Assessment is limited to macroscopic structures within plant and animal systems.
Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
By the end of year, read and comprehend informational texts, including history/social studies, science, and technical texts, in the grades 4–5 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.
Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
