Product Description
Physics Chat: A First Day of School Lab Station Icebreaker Activity for Physics Students.

Physics Chat: The first day of school should be fun, not boring! This science lab icebreaker activity will help your students learn about their classmates, while serving as a diagnostic tool for the instructor.

Do you want to be the fun teacher, or the one who reads the class syllabus out loud on the first day of school?

What are the benefits of this activity?
Group work is an important part of what we do in a science class. Each student will need a lab partner, and there will be many times in the classroom when group work is required. This activity will allow the students to get to know one another before they have to work together on a “real” assignment or lab. It also serves as a diagnostic tool for the instructor.

What will the students be doing?
There are 10 lab stations. Students will rotate through each of the ten stations, completing the tasks at each station. Each station will contain a science-related task as well as an icebreaker question that each student must answer

Concepts covered at each lab station:
Station 1: Newton's Laws of Motion
Station 2: Graphing and Analyzing
Station 3: The Inclined Plane
Station 4: The Concept of Work
