The Savvas Advantage

Marine Science and the 5E Learning Model

The 5E learning model develops inquiry skills and anchors lessons. Lessons are framed in each of the 5Es: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate, so students can apply the same skills as actual scientists.

Students will be able to construct their knowledge of marine science through active participation in teacher demonstrations, hands-on labs, cyberlabs, and other types of graphing and modeling activities.

Built-in instructional resources make a splash in the classroom

The easy-to-find icons for Teacher Instruction, Teacher Demonstration, Discussion, Lesson Connections, and the Teacher’s Tip help you facilitate the lessons with confidence and ease.
