Five-E Instructional Model
12
Five-E Model Background
5E learning cycle was developed by Biological
Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) in 1989. 5E
Model is based from the SCIS Model of Instruction
by researchers Atkins and Karplus in 1967.
Effective teaching strategy in enhancing
students understanding and achievement. Helps
students develop their own frames of
thought. Uses collaboration and cooperative
groups to aid in student learning. Places
teacher in more of a facilitator role.
13
Five-E Model

Puts the responsibility for learning on the
shoulders on the students. Facilitates learning
more effectively for a broader range of students
than traditional lecture-first
strategies. Promotes greater retention of
subject matter than traditional strategies

Unit 6 Astronomy Earth, Moon, and Sun Overview
16
Unit 6 Astronomy- Earth, Moon, and Sun Content
Standard and Elements
Standard S6E2. Students will understand the
effects of the relative positions of the
Earth, moon and sun.
  • Elements
  • Demonstrate the phases of the moon by showing the
    alignment of the earth, moon and sun.
  • Explain the alignment of the earth, moon, and sun
    during solar and lunar eclipses.
  • Relate the tilt of the earth to the distribution
    of sunlight throughout the year and its effect on
    climate.
  •  

Standard S6E1. Students will explore current
scientific views of the universe and how those
views evolved.
  • Elements
  • Explain the motion of objects in the day/night
    sky in terms of relative position.
  •  

17
Unit 6 Astronomy- Earth, Moon, and Sun
Essential Questions
  • Essential Questions
  • Why does the moon appear to change shapes?
  • How do lunar and solar eclipses differ? How are
    lunar and solar eclipses alike?
  • Why does earth have different seasons?
  • How does the gravitational pull of the moon
    affect me when I am at the beach?

18
Unit 6 Astronomy- Earth, Moon, and Sun
Enduring Understandings
  • The moons orbit around the Earth once in about
    28 days changes what part of the moon is lighted
    by the sun and how much of that part can be seen
    from the earth.
  • A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes
    through the Earths shadow.
  • A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes
    between the Earth and the sun.
  • Because the Earth turns daily on an axis that is
    tilted relative to the plane of the Earths
    yearly orbit around the sun, sunlight falls more
    intensely on different parts of the Earth during
    the year. The difference in heating of the
    Earths surface produces the planets seasons and
    weather patterns.
  • The gravitational pull from the moon, and the
    spinning of the earth, causes ocean water to
    bulge, producing the tides.

Unit 7 Astronomy Universe and the Solar
System Overview
23
Unit 7 Astronomy - Universe and the Solar
System Content Standard and Elements
Standard S6E1. Students will investigate the
scientific view of how the earths surface is
formed.
  • Elements
  • Relate Nature of Science to progression of basic
    historic scientific theories (geocentric and
    heliocentric) as they describe our solar system
    and the Big Bang as it describes the formation of
    universe.
  • Describe position of solar system in Milky Way
    galaxy and the universe.
  • Compare and contrast the planets in terms of
  • Size relative to the earth, ? Surface and
    atmospheric features
  • Relative distance from the sun, ? Ability to
    support life
  • Explain motion of objects in the day/ night sky
    in terms of relative position.
  • Explain that gravity is the force that governs
    the motion in the solar system.
  • Describe the characteristics of comets,
    asteroids, and meteors.

Unit 7 Astronomy - Universe and the Solar
System Content Standard and Elements
Standard S6E1. Students will investigate the
scientific view of how the earths surface is
formed.
  • Elements
  • Explain the motion of objects in the day/ night
    sky in terms of relative position.
  • Explain that gravity is the force that governs
    the motion in the solar system.
  • Describe the characteristics of comets,
    asteroids, and meteors.

25
Unit 7 Astronomy - Universe and the Solar
System Essential Questions
  • Essential Questions
  • Why don't you float off in space when you are on
    earth?
  • Why do planets never leave the solar system or
    fall into the Sun?
  • Can we see our own galaxy in the night sky?
    Explain.

26
Unit 7 Astronomy - Universe and the Solar
System Enduring Understandings
  • Observational evidence caused the model of the
    solar system to be changed from one in which the
    sun and planets orbit the Earth to one
  • in which the Earth and planets orbit the sun.
  • The Big Bang is a theory of how the universe
    began.
  • The sun is a medium-sized star located near the
    edge of a disk-shaped galaxy of stars (Milky
    Way), part of which can be seen as a glowing band
    of light that spans the sky on a very clear
    night.
  • The planets of our solar system differ in size,
    composition (rock or gas), surface and
    atmospheric features, and distance from the sun.

27
Unit 7 Astronomy - Universe and the Solar
System Enduring Understandings
  • Planets move around the sun in nearly circular
    orbits.
  • The Earth is the only body in the solar system
    that appears to be able to support life.
  • The motion of an object is always judged with
    respect to some other object or point, so the
    idea of absolute motion or rest is misleading.
  • Comets and asteroids are objects smaller than
    planets that orbit the sun and vary in size,
    composition, and characteristics.
  • Gravity is the force that keeps planets in orbit
    around the sun and governs the rest of the motion
    in the solar system.

    lab?

32
Engage Anticipating Misconceptions
  • Anticipation Guide
  • Please fill out the Anticipation Guide based on
    the task A Moonth of Phases.
  • Share out.
  • How do you address the misconceptions in your
    classroom

33
Misconceptions
Misconceptions
MISCONCEPTIONS You can't see the Moon during the day. The Moon does not rotate. The back side of the Moon (side away from Earth) is always dark. The Moon's phases are caused by shadow of Earth on the Moon. PROPER CONCEPTIONS The moon can be seen during day during several of moon's phases. The time length of day that moon can be seen varies with phase of the moon. The Moon does rotate on its axis. Its rotation period is the same as its revolution period therefore, the same side of the Moon is always facing the Earth. The Sun's rays do strike back side of Moon. However, from our position on Earth, we never see the light striking that side of the Moon. The Moon's phases are caused by the part of the Moon that reflects the Sun and seen from our position on Earth.
