Stations include primary source documents as well short description, secondary sources, maps and videos. Students have a sheet to record their chats with their group mates about each station. Then the teacher will lead a whole class discussion about what the class just learned and their is an Exit Ticket or Ticket out the Door question for the students to complete as well.
