Display this poster in your classroom to highlight the relevant phase of the 5E model by affixing the arrow with blu-tac and moving it down the poster as the students progress through the inquiry.

Support the development of students’ meta-cognition by discussing the sequence of learning, and the purpose of each phase. Encourage students to notice the value of exploring the concept before they explain it, of using their evidence to support their explanations, and then applying their new knowledge and understanding in a new context.
