Do you have an observation station in your classroom? This is a great station because it can be easily linked to science and social studies standards. Materials can be borrowed from local organizations, such as a high school science lab, children’s or science museum, or even a regional education service center. Ask around to find out what might be available to you and share your ideas with fellow teachers in the comment section!
Below are a few photos from grades 3-6 in Lafayette, IN.
If you open an observation station in your classroom, send us photos and tell us a little about what students are doing and learning in this station. We’d love to see what your class is doing!
