How does the 5E model facilitate learning?

• It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science

• Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness

• It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences

------------------------------------------------------------

The NRC's How People Learn has synthesized decades of research across many different disciplines about how people learn (NRC, 1999 blue right-pointing triangle). Key findings from that synthesis include the following. First, students (people) must be interested and engaged in what they are learning and find it useful and meaningful. Second, students (people) must be actively involved in the process of teaching and learning, comparing new information to previous ideas, constructing new understandings, and quite simply changing their own minds about how the world works. And third, students (people) need opportunities to apply what they have learned to new situations, to check the completeness of their understanding, and to evaluate their own learning for themselves. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2931660/)

By incorporating this 5E lesson, you will provide your students with a meaningful and coherent way of learning that best suits their needs. You will also utilize technology in a way that creates order and promotes understanding.

Explore - Our Solar System - 7 Engaging Lab Station Activities

This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Our Solar System and its Production is meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students' knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.), but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment. Each station comes with a description card while some also contain more detailed instructions, a reading, questions to answer, etc. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you're all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.

This lab activity covers:

- The Sun

- The Inner Planets

- The Outer Planets

- Pluto

- The Moon

----------------------------------------------

Bonus Activities: To ensure your students don’t have any downtime between stations, your lab also includes a 10-word word scramble and word search, both with an answer key. You can use them as part of their mark, as a bonus so it’s not mandatory, etc. However you choose to use it, it will ensure that your students are always busy and never idle. Note: For stronger classes, I give the word scramble and for weaker ones, the word search.

-----------------------------------------------

How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.

Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.

Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.

Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.

Station 4: Rest Station - students can use this time to catch up on work they didn't have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.

Station 5 - Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.

Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.

Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.

Station 8 - Rest Station.

Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers

Explanation - Our Solar System Lesson

Our Solar System Lesson and Assignment Package. This package will take 1-2 DAYS depending on your pace. The package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), and a student lesson handout as a word document. The PowerPoint is fun and applicable with TWO videos embedded into the PowerPoint.

Included in the lesson package is:

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

Elaborate - Our Solar System Scavenger Hunt Activity

This activity is the coolest thing I've created and your kids are going to love it, mine do. Think of a scavenger hunt, then add devices (Smartphones, Chromebooks, Laptops, or Tablets), engaged students, and learning through assessment and you have this resource.

Quick Disclaimer. In order to use this activity, your classroom must have at least 1 device per 3 students. Smartphones, Chromebooks, Laptops, and Tablets will all work perfectly. The wording and delivery make this resource perfect for a wide range of grade levels. If for some reason you feel this hunt isn't perfect for your classroom, I'm happy to refund your purchase no questions asked.

The Content Includes:

• Space travel - distance and time

• The Planets

• Why Pluto isn't a planet anymore

• Luminous and Non-Luminous objects

• The Sun

• The Asteroid Belt

This activity:

• Lets your students utilize their devices

• Cuts down on wasted paper

• Combines learning with assessment

• Is a lot of fun

• Comes in both Word and PDF formats

Each Hunt is different and offers a unique way for your students to explore the topic. From Hunt-to-Hunt, possible tasks your students will face include:

• Video analysis

• Simulations

• Fully automated and marked Quiz

• Finish the story

• Start the story

• Calculations

• News article

• Opinion

• Word scramble

• Short answer

• Web research

Evaluate - There are two assessment items in the evaluation section. Choose to use one or both.

1) Model Solar System Activity

This Space activity is geared to three different learning levels. Get your students to build a model solar system 25 feet long to scale. I've been using this activity for many years and it always gets my kids excited and keeps them engaged.

The Model Solar System Activity has three versions depending on your student’s ability level (also for those of you who don’t use metric, I've included three additional tables that utilize imperial measurements).

1) The first version is for lower grades (usually grades 4-7) and has conversions already completed. This chart can also be used as an answer key! All that’s needed is for your students to measure, cut and paste.

2) The second version has the table partially filled out and is for older grades (7-9) as it requires some simple math to scale the distances.

3) The third version (grade 9 and above) requires your students to think a little more and also perform some research as the students will need to determine real-life diameters and distances. This is an excellent opportunity to have your students use their own technology (cell phones, etc.) in a school appropriate fashion.

2) Space Newsletter

Students will create a newsletter about our solar system through guided research. Allow your students to learn through inquiry with this guided research-based, hands-on assignment. They will study our solar system and the celestial bodies that make it up. The activity is in word and allows for full customization. Your students will gain research as well as design and creativity skills by performing this assignment. Also, this assignment encourages your students to use their own devices in class.

Included in the lesson package is:

- A full overview of the task

- A complete marking rubric and answer key
