What is the 5E Instructional Model?

The 5E Model is student-led, with the teacher acting mainly as the facilitator. Through open-ended questions, real-life experiences, guided investigations, and research, the students gain a deep understanding of the scientific topics that are covered in the lessons. Each stage of the model serves as a foundation to the next, creating a coherent model that frames lessons, activities, and units.

What are the Science Stations?

The Science Stations offer several different ways students can display their understanding. Each unit has 8 stations that include: Watch a Video, Play a Video Game, Diagram, Read a Passage, Model, Explore, and Sort. Each station approaches the standard in a slightly different format so that students work with the content using different modalities and activities.
