This S.C.I.E.N.C.E. Stations Quick Start Guide contains all of the directions and signage necessary to start using these stations in your own classroom. This teacher guide can be used with all of our other S.C.I.E.N.C.E. Stations products and only needs to be printed one time. These stations are designed to get your students engaged, collaborating, and moving in your daily lesson. Each station provides a different method for reinforcing important science content. All stations correlate to a task that is represented by a letter in the word SCIENCE. These stations will have students Summarize, Create, Interpret, Experiment, Navigate, Challenge, and Extend. You may choose to have your students work independently, with partners, or in small groups. All S.C.I.E.N.C.E. Stations are versatile and designed to be used in all of these scenarios.
