  3. 3. 8 Scientific & Engineering PracticesThe practices describe behaviors that scientists engagein as they investigate and build models and theoriesabout the natural world and the key set of engineeringpractices that engineers use as they design and buildmodels and systems. The intent is to better explain and extend what is meant by “inquiry” in science.

  18. 18. The 5Es Phase Purpose • Capture students’ interest, uncover what students know and think about a topic, Engage and determine student misconceptions. • Provide cooperative exploration activities, give students common concrete experiences that help students begin to construct concepts and build skills.Explore • Provide hands-on experiences you can use later to formally introduce concepts, processes, and skills. • Students articulate their ideas in their own words and listen critically to one another’s ideas. • The teacher clarifies concepts, corrects misconceptions, and introduces Explain terminology. • It is important to clearly connect the students’ explanations to experiences they had in the engage and explore phases.Elaborate • Students apply their understanding of the concept learned to a new situation. • Evaluate students’ understanding of concepts and their proficiency with variousEvaluate skills. • Opportunity for students to assess their own understanding and skills.
