I attended the Suffolk STANYS conference this past spring and came across a presentation about "Station Labs". I know this is not a new concept but had never experimented with these types of activities in my chemistry class. The presentation focused on stations that specific titles like "Write It!", "Read It", "Explore it" and "Watch it!". These stations were similar to literacy stations that I have used in the past. The stations are student centered with small groups that can be completed in 10-15 minutes. The idea behind station actives is to differentiate instruction for specific content. I recently created a station activity for my first chapter, atomics, and can't wait to see how it goes. If you would like a copy of my activity, please send me an email through the contact page.
