Inquiry-based Learning Inquiry-based learning is a teaching style that focuses on student investigation and hands-on learning. In this method, the teacher’s primary role is that of a facilitator, providing guidance and support for students through the learning process. Inquiry-based learning falls under the student-centered approach, in that students play an active and participatory role in their own learning process

I have developed an Exploration Center in my school with a variety of learning stations where students can manipulate a variety of educational materials. It contains habitats and specimens where students can make observations , describe what they see, and make inferences to create the hypothesis, while they develop and learn new ideas and concepts through science exploration . Students are able to touch specimens and make direct observations, such as comparing the jaws of a herbivore and a carnivore, students internalize the concepts they won’t forget. The animal specimens are incorporated in their lessons for animal studies supported with the appropriate grade level literature. The Exploration Center supports and enriches the school curriculum by using resources that promote hands-on experiential learning. Exploration Center focus is on academic achievement, language development through the content areas, and social development through the use of instructional methods in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and cultural awareness through our Multicultural Center.
