5-E Model for Teaching Inquiry Science

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD

Elementary Inquiry Science Is Important

Elementary science lays a foundation to help students develop investigation skills which they will use later on in more advanced science. It also fosters a background in communication and critical thinking, both useful life skills. By incorporating these different steps of scientific inquiry, students will develop a better understanding of how to investigate questions, present evidence, use different tools, and explore different ethical issues in science.
