Science Sampler: The Use of Stations to Develop Inquiry Skills and Content for Rock Hounds
Veal, William R.; Chandler, Anna T.
Science Scope, v32 n1 p54-57 Sep 2008
Teaching the rock cycle can overwhelm even the most enthusiastic rock hound. As middle school science teachers, we constantly struggle with an appropriate balance between Earth system content and experiential activities. The authors have found that stations can be successfully employed to teach rock cycle content while reinforcing development of inquiry skills. Using stations, teachers are able to implement the abundance of available activities that incorporate content, standards, and inquiry skills. (Contains 4 figures.)
