Our STEAM stations are great for enrichment, differentiation, assessment, group activities, mini-labs, and more! Each unit includes directions for each activity, answer keys, station signs, and student answer sheets.
With science as the primary background subject, students will learn life science units by using Social Studies (which includes history, current events and geography), Technology (computers and engineering), ELA (reading and writing), the Arts (music, art, PE/dance and debate), and Math. These print-and-go, low-prep lab stations are easy to implement with a few household items and provide a method for teaching life science that shows how science concepts flow across the curricula and are relatable in all aspects of life.
**It is important that students complete these stations with some background knowledge of the topic of study as theses are not intended as an introductory lesson.
This Cross-Curricular Science Lab Station Bundle includes the following student-led stations:
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
