Product Description
SNAPs Lab Stations are differentiated laboratory activities that require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. These labs are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world.

About SNAPs Lab Stations:
SNAPs labs have five components:
Science Skills Station to develop science skill proficiency
Narrative Station to build science literacy
Assessment Station to evaluate learning and understanding
Problem-Solving Station to foster engineering design
Synthesis/Summary Project to inspire higher-order learning

Science Skills Station
At this station, students explore a concept using science and math skills. The skills may be procedural or something that a student must physically do. The skills may be mathematical or require scientific thinking and reasoning.

Narrative Station
Students employ literacy skills important to reading and understanding a scientific text at the Narrative Station. They will not only have to understand written text but illustrations, tables and graphs as well. In some labs, students will explore multimedia sources, such as videos, audio files or animations on a computer.

Assessment Station
Students answer task card questions at this station. Students answer multiple choice questions, short answer questions and/or open-ended, thought-provoking questions. The questions consider Bloom’s taxonomy and require students to employ lower, mid and higher order thinking.

Problem-Solving Station
This station provides an opportunity for students to connect the engineering design process to scientific concepts. Students utilize problem-solving and engineering skills so to identify problems, test solutions and/or make improvements to solutions.

Synthesis/Summary Project
At this “station,” students utilize higher-order thinking (evaluation and synthesis/creation). They complete an activity or project that helps summarize information studied and learned in the lab. This facilitates “bringing it all together" while getting students to think harder and deeper about a concept.

About this Guide:
This guide provides information to help you understand the objectives and benefits of my SNAPs lab station activities. It provides information on how to implement lab station activities in your classroom and gives ideas and suggestions to help make lab stations work for your particular classroom.

The guide also includes instructions on how to create lab portfolios to help you organize and store students' labs as well as instructions on how to implement lab journals as a form of formative assessment.
