Already have great lessons but want some more student-led labs?

Student Led Science Labs

These comprehensive science labs will save you a TON of prep time and allow students to learn the concepts on their own. 

The Lab Bundle is a series of plug and play station labs designed to accompany my FREE Kesler Science Station Lab Series. Download the start-up guide to learn more about how to use it in the classroom. Each lab has 8 differentiated stations for the students to guide their learning.


Included in the Bundle:



BEGINNING OF THE YEAR LABS 

  • Lab Safety

DIFFERENTIATED LABS

There are 8 total stations for each of the labs (plus 2 signs for break stations if needed). Each station includes all of the signage, literature, resources, and task cards for the students to complete them independently or with a group. The labs will also require a few laboratory items that you likely already have in your lab for the Explore It! station.




The Stations:

Explore It! – This station will typically be a hands-on demo or experiment that allows the student to connect the information through application.


Illustrate It! – This station allows the student to sketch or draw out the concept that they are learning. This allows for better recall and retention of new information.


Read It! – At this station, students will find a short passage relevant to the content and have to answer 3-4 multiple choice questions about the reading.


Watch It! – Students will watch a short video at this station and answer questions relevant to their learning. This station can be setup with class computers/tablets, SMART board, or even a teachers computer.


Organize It! – The students will be working with a card sorts or manipulatives at this station. These are included with each of my units.


Write It! – At this station the students will be responding to 2-4 short answer prompts that will allow them to communicate their knowledge in complete sentences.


Research It! – This station will be a website that students will go to learn more information about the topic. Students will perform tasks and answer questions on their lab sheet. This station can be setup with class computers/tablets, SMART board, or even a teachers computer. If no computers are available you can double up one of the other stations and replace this module. Easy.


Assess It! – The students will demonstrate their knowledge of the topic using a series of task cards with more formal questions.
