This lesson follows the 5E model of instruction containing five phases of learning (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate). It provides a carefully planned sequence of instruction that places students at the center of learning. It encourages all students to explore, construct understanding of scientific concepts, and relate those understandings to phenomena or engineering problems.
During this STEAM lesson for Grade 2, students will gain understanding of how living things can be found in ecosystems that provide them with certain elements that are specific to their survival. Students will integrate and exhibit learning by creating a system that simulates two unique features of a sea turtle habitat, and uses those two features to predict areas in which sea turtles can be located.
