5-E Model for Teaching Inquiry Science

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD

5-E Model: Elaborate

In the Elaboration phase, students use the information they’ve gathered to propose solutions and apply what they’ve learned to different situations. 

The role of the teacher is to help students extend their ideas to other situations so that they can come up with a much broader conclusion than what they initially found by conducting their experiment.
