The SCI-Bridge Model and Inquiry
Inquiry-based science is a pedagogical approach to science teaching and learning where children actively participate in learning experiences that provide them with opportunities to identify and ask questions, think creatively, investigate phenomena, explore potential answers, make observations, test ideas, and apply newly developed knowledge.
The SCI-Bridge model utilizes guided inquiry as an approach for the application of the instructional framework. Through guided inquiry, teachers guide students to answer and ask questions, conduct guided investigations, develop explanations about their findings and communicate their understandings, and apply their knowledge to new contexts.
