Definitely try and incorporate hands on activities when you want to engage young students. Let them explore and be able to manipulate their environment. It will get them interested and help lead them into deeper levels of inquiry later on.

That is a great idea! Having as much hands on things for kids to experience will help them develop their curiosity and help get them into experimenting and inquiry early.

The 5E lesson plan lends itself well to inquiry lessons. There are natural places within the lesson itself that students can experiment and explore. The 5E lesson plan is very collaborative and like was posted above, every piece of it has a purpose. As long as that purpose is kept in mind when planning, it turns into a free flowing, effective lesson.
