Looking for differentiated activities to introduce, or review, the Periodic Table? Check out the Periodic Table Student Learning Stations. Stations are a great way to get your students up and moving around the room; while differentiating to meet the needs of the various learners in your classroom.
As someone who has employed stations in my own classroom, these activities are a great way to engage and motivate students; and allow you to act as a facilitator or work with small groups of struggling learners.
IMPORTANT: This station learning set is part of a GROWING bundle of Chemistry Student Learning Station sets (13). It is currently being offered at a reduced price as it is incomplete; however, it will increase in price as the other components are added. Purchase now to receive all the updates!
