My “Chat” activities involve lab stations and cooperative student groups. Students work together to solve a problem, complete a task and /or carry out a small experiment at each station. I use the word “chat” to emphasize to my students that they are to work together and have a productive discussion at each lab station in order to maximize their understanding and mastery of the concepts being covered.
My latest addition to my series of Chat Lab Stations is called Microscope Chat.
What are the benefits of this activity?
• Group work is an important part of what we do in a science class, and it is a skill that will be needed throughout life. Lab station activities teach students how to work together to achieve a goal.
• These microscope lab stations will ensure that students have mastered the concepts of the microscope and its proper use.
