Attached are 6 stations for Systems of Equations using the Substitution Method. Included also is an answer key and a worksheet for students to keep track of their work from each station.
I used these stations in class on day two of teaching the Substitution Method. This was a great way for students to practice learning their new method along with incorporating movement into the lesson.
These are a few ways in which I use stations in my classroom:
1.) Place students in 6 different groups and set a timer. Once the timer goes off, students rotate clockwise to the next station. This is repeated until all students have attended each station. This method forces students to work together as a team and even if one person in a group finishes early, they can explain their thought process to the rest of the group.
2.) Print multiple copies of the stations and place them in sheet protectors or Smart Pals. Scatter the problems around the room and hallway and allow students to work with a partner, moving along to different problems as they finish. This method allows students to work at their own pace with their partner. It also allows students to begin work on homework as they finish at their own pace and return to their desks.
Both methods are equally successful in my classroom, I hope one of them works for you as well! Enjoy! :)
