Reflection: Station Rotation Stewardship: Our Responsibility - Section 3: Activity


The design of this lesson is to quickly introduce stewardship and then get students working on sorting recyclables in centers. To do this effectively, I first consider who will be in the centers together, who can work well together, and whether the centers need different reading levels to be successful. In this lesson, the students can figure out the centers without much reading, so I am more concerned with whether the students can simply work together. After I have that worked out and the students in 3 groups, I use a chart to show students where they are going on day 1. On day 2, I have moved each group of students on place to the right for the first round, and then I have a third chart for the third center where they have moved to the right again. I do this all ahead of time to make the transitions quick! I show the chart on the SmartBoard and the students can quickly find where they are going.

Check out my Center Rotation Chart Example and watch as I explain Making Center Rotation Charts.
