5-E Model for Teaching Inquiry Science

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD

5-E Model for Teaching Inquiry Science

The 5-E Model was developed by BSCS in Colorado, and is designed to follow the way we solve problems natural in life.

Initially there is curiosity or engagement which leads to an exploration of related ideas. After gathering some information, we try to develop an explanation. We can also extend this explanation and apply it to other situations, a process which is called elaboration. Finally, we evaluate the quality of our evaluation.
