How can a teacher simultaneously teach science concepts through inquiry while helping students learn about the nature of science? After pondering this question in their own teaching, the authors developed a 5E learning cycle lesson (Bybee et al. 2006) that concurrently embeds opportunities for fourth-grade students to (a) learn a science concept, (b) develop an inquiry skill, and (c) learn about scientific inquiry (an aspect of the nature of science). This approach has been found to be particularly useful to help students think like scientists. (Contains 1 figure.)
