Entomology: Promoting Creativity in the Science Lab
Akcay, Behiye B.
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v50 n2 p49-53 2013
A class activity has been designed to help fourth grade students to identify basic insect features as a means of promoting student creativity while making an imaginary insect model. The 5Es (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend [or Elaborate], and Evaluate) learning cycle teaching model is used. The 5Es approach allows students to work in small groups. It gives students an opportunity to think more creatively about different insects as they demonstrate their creativity in developing an original insect model. (Contains 5 figures.)
