Set Up Station Rotations for Learning
If you are lucky enough to have tables in your room versus desks, then this activity will require little to no set up. However, if you have desks, you will need to arrange them so you have four to five desks grouped together to make a table. You will need to make a total of four groups set up so that they are not close together to allow movement around the room when it is time to rotate.
Label the stations as colors; for example, GREEN STATION, BLUE STATION, RED STATION, PURPLE STATION, etc. This seems to be less confusing than numbering the stations. Depending on the size of your room, it also helps to create two of each station, so that when one group finishes at the green station, they can easily find an open station of another color.
Depending on the resources I select, I also make a master question sheet that has questions pertaining to the documents or videos the students are reading and watching at each station. I also label the questions in groups according to their station color, but the students know that their group (they must remain in the original group of four or five that you assign them) can complete the station questions in any color order.
