About SNAPs Lab Stations Activities
SNAPs Lab Stations Activities require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. They are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. Each station activity promotes skills so to develop students into proficient and competent scientific thinkers.
SNAPs lab activities 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

A description of the activities at each station in this particular lab is detailed below.
Saturation and Solubility Lab Stations Activity Learning Objectives
1. Discern between a solute and solvent in a solution.
2. Provide evidence that confirms the relationship between solubility and temperature for liquid and solid solutes.
3. Explain the relationship between solubility and pressure for gas solutes.
4. Compare and contrast a saturated, unsaturated and supersaturated solution.
5. Identify unknown substances based on their solubility.
Science Skills Station
Students will conduct an investigation to determine the solubility of sucrose in water at three different temperatures. Students will make saturated solutions of sucrose and water. They will graph the amount of sucrose added to the water at the different temperatures to demonstrate the (typical) relationship between solubility and temperature.
Students will read informational texts about solubility and saturation. Students will read about the relationship between solubility and temperature (for liquid and solid solutes) and solubility and pressure (for gas solutes). Students will also read about unsaturated, saturated and supersaturated solutions.
At this station, students will answer questions about key terms and ideas relating to solutions, solubility and saturation. Students will have to employ lower, mid and higher order thinking skills to answer these questions.
Students will have a choice of 11 projects. Refer to the SNAPs Lab Stations Best Practices and Setup Guide for directions and suggestions on how to conduct the project.
NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS
This laboratory does not address a specific Next Generation Science Standard, but it complements NGSS concepts. It combines the three dimensions of science learning - science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts - in order to meet the standard. This laboratory also makes interdisciplinary connections to STEM, Math CCSS and ELA CCSS to build the appropriate skills.
