Description

In this SORT science station, students read about the sense of touch then sort pictures of different objects into categories according to the type of touch they have. They then answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

This SORT station is also available in a larger bundle of 8 stations at a discount.

Google Classroom™️ Components Include:

Information about the full 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 as 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 how the four physical science Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) are combined and how the engineering standards are incorporated.

Information Processing Stations Include

Vocabulary Cards in two formats with and without pictures.

Watch a Video About Seeing and Tasting - Students watch one of two videos and then answer questions about the videos. Videos include: sense of sight and sense of taste.

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

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

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

Read about Animals with Extraordinary Senses - Students read about extraordinary sensory systems in animals. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Model Echolocation with Dolphins - 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 the Function of the Tongue - Students read about the sense of taste and conduct a taste test. Students answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.

Sort Types of Touch - Students read about the sense of touch and 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.
