There are 8 total stations for the station lab (plus 2 signs for break stations if needed). Each station includes all of the signage, literature, resources, and task cards for the students to complete them independently or with a group.

Explore It! – This station will be a hands-on demo or experiment that allows the student to connect the information through the application of looking at different types of volcanoes.
