  • 2. Science Content Concepts Process of Skills of Science Science
  • 3. Science Process Skills  Observing  Communicating – writing objectively  Classifying  Measuring  Relating objects in space & time  Predicting  Inferring  Controlling variables  Defining operationally  Experimenting
  • 4. Elicit Engage Evaluate Explore 5 E’s Science Lesson Extend Elaborate Explain
  • 5. Engage  Activity which will focus student’s attention, stimulate their thinking, and access prior knowledge.  Demonstration  Reading  Free Write  Analyze a Graphic Organizer  KWL (Know already ~ Want to know ~ Learn) This is the “elicit” part  Brainstorming Student asks questions such as: Why did this happen? What do I already know about this? What have I found out about this? Shows interest in the topic.
  • 6. Explore  Activity which gives students time to think and investigate/test/make decisions/problem solve, and collect information.  Perform an Investigation  Read Authentic Resources to Collect Information  Solve a Problem  Construct a Model
  • 7. Explain  Activity which allows students to analyze their exploration. Student’s understanding is clarified and modified through a reflective activity.  Student Analysis & Explanation  Supporting Ideas with Evidence  Structured Questioning  Reading and Discussion  Teacher Explanation  Thinking Skill Activities: compare, classify, error analysis
  • 8. Elaborate  Activity which expands and solidifies student thinking and/or applies it to a real-world situation.  Problem Solving  Decision Making  Experimental Inquiry  Thinking Skill Activities: compare, classify, apply
  • 9. Evaluate  Activity which allows the teacher to assess student performance and/or understandings of concepts, skills, processes, and applications.  Any of the Previous Activities  Develop a Scoring Tool or Rubric  Performance Assessment  Produce a Product  Journal Entry  Portfolio Extend
  • 10. Earth Central Activities & 5Es  Introductory PowerPoint about  Engage/Elicit our institute by Richard.  Explore  GPS Practice  Solar Challenge  Explain  Elaborate  Making geological maps  Curriculum Work  Forum Interactions (online)  Evaluate/Expand
