Stations Labs

To review for major assessments, I like to set up stations labs around my classroom. They usually take about 40-60 minutes for most students to complete, though some students end up finishing some stations for homework. I make one master answer key and keep it on me during the activity. The students check in with me after completing each station so I can give them immediate feedback. If they work is completely correct, I either sign my initials or stamp their sheet, and they move onto a different station. It can be a little chaotic but I like knowing where each students stands as the period progresses. I make the students move around the room (although many would like to stay in one seat) so they are active and get a chance to work with different students. Hope your students enjoy them too!

Writing Equations Stations Lab

I like to set up stations labs when students need additional practice on a topic. I usually sit at one of the stations and call up specific students who need some one-on-one help. I require all students to check in with me after every single station. This creates some organized chaos, but I do it so that I can constantly be assessing students’ progress, and address any concerns with the whole class if I notice that students keep getting the same problems wrong.

This W-R-I-T-I-N-G Equations Stations Lab includes having students write equations from: tables, situations, point and slope, two points, and graphs.
