How To Get Started With Stations in the Science Classroom
I've a had a few teachers email me asking about how to begin to use stations in the science classroom, so I thought a quick How-To Post was in order. My students are doing stations this week (4 out of the 5 days), so I will refer to those stations throughout this post, in addition to adding some pictures I snapped in class today. First and foremost, I've discovered that not all content easily lends itself to stations. And not all students are 100% ready for this different way of doing…

So much, in fact, that I was able to extract a slug of bismuth metal from a pile of pink pills.
Chemistry Lab: Percent Composition
Easy! Fun! And students get to see a hands-on application of the problems we solve in the classroom. For the extremely busy teacher, it doesn't get much better than this for a great chemistry lab. When the materials list consists of..... Baking soda, 2N sulfuric acid, a spot plate, a Beral pipet ( or any dropper), a balance, and a test tube ........ it is a good day for the chemistry teacher!! The percentage composition of a compound is the percentage by mass of each of the elements in the…
