According to John Dewey, American constructivist……………………….

……..collaboration is conductive to learning. Through the inquiry process, students collaborate to conduct investigations in which they ask questions, seek information, create new knowledge to solve problems, and reflect on their learning.

Before Activity
  • Form groups: 4 or 5 in a group
  • Name group
  • Number yourself
the airplane activity
The Airplane Activity

Step 1:

4 Workers: Make an airplane with materials

provided that can fly at least 10 feet.

Others-Recorders: Record steps used to make airplane.

Step 2:

Workers: Fly the plane

Recorders: Record what happens

activity continued
Activity continued…

Step 3: Read Observations-Switch roles

Workers: modify the airplane or create new plane.

Recorders: Record building steps.

Workers: fly plane

Recorders: Record outcome of flight

inquiry based learning should do the following
Inquiry based learning should do the following:
  • Develop information-processing skills.
  • Nurture habits of mind: What people naturally do to solve a problem, explore a problem or answer a question/ problem.
  • Lead to content understanding.

  • S5CS3. Students will use tools and instruments for observing, measuring, and manipulating objects in scientific activities.
  • a. Choose appropriate common materials for making simple mechanical constructions and repairing things.
  • S5CS1. Students will be aware of the importance of curiosity, honesty, openness, and skepticism in science and will exhibit these traits in their own efforts to understand how the world works.
  • a. Keep records of investigations and observations and do not alter the records later. b. Carefully distinguish observations from ideas and speculation about those observations.
  • c. Offer reasons for findings and consider reasons suggested by others.
review of activity

Review of Activity

Did the activity stimulate information processing skills?

What about habits of mind?

  • What artifact or evidence could you use to show your learning?

Assessment of I.B.L.
  • Assess the evidence of work…could be an observation, could be an artifact chosen by the student, could be through a narrative assessment of the learning ?…… The narrative could be a written assessment of what the students have learned (their words, their thinking) or what questions they still have. You choose the assessment that fits with the learning taking place.
