A big part of science is learning from others and disussing ideas with others. I think the best arrangement would be seating them in groups of 4 all facing each other. There are also these chairs that roll around and have desks attached to them and a basekt under the chair for their bags and it allows them to move around easily. This would help transitiong from lectures to discusions and group ac...

5 Great Collection!
The name of this collection is the 5E Learning Cycle and it was created by Kathy Sparrow. This collection contains a lot of resources that give you information about the 5 E learning cycle. I find myself using this model because it is very hands on and student-centered and can really allow students to learn from each other. I think that is what science is all about. I referred to this collection when I was writing my 5E lesson plan and it gave me a lot of examples as to what each phase should look like. I would share this collection with any of my future colleagues because there is a lot of information and a lot of examples that they can get inspiration from. The resources in this article also tell you why this model is effective and teach you how to inquiries your teaching. Each phase has a purpose and allows a child to do an investigation and learn while doing so. My collection review was posted on November 20, 2019.
