Product Description
Cross-Curricular STEAM Lab Stations Set-Up Guide for Biology and Life Science

With science as the primary background subject, students will learn life science by using:
Social Studies
Technology & Engineering

These print and go, low-to-no prep Science Lab Stations are easy to implement with a few household items and provide a method for teaching how science concepts flow across the curricula and are relatable in all aspects of life.

These STEAM stations are great for enrichment, differentiation, assessment, group activities, mini-labs, and more!

Included in this free product is signage in two sizes for eight stations, blank templates for you to create your own stations, and student station role descriptions.

This Cross-Curricular STEAM Science Lab Station Set Up includes following student-led station signage and roles:

Explorer: As an explorer, students engage in Social Studies, Geography, and History as they learn about current events, historical figures and events, etc.
Researcher: Students use a computer, smart phone, ipad or other electronic device to research related topics.
Maker: This station entails students taking on the role of engineering, designing, building, assembling, and/or experimenting with manipulatives. 
Scriber: At this station, students write a response to a question or problem.
Reader: Students answer questions related to a reading passage .
Performer: For this station, students get their creative juices flow as they participate in one of the many arts
Solver: Students use their math skills to answer science related math problems
Scholar: An assessment piece that aligns with the lessons included in the Science Circuit
