The Inquire stage has two steps: Engage Learners and Build Inquiry. In these steps, teachers design activities that “hook” the students, introduces
the project topic and essential question, and has the students generating questions that help answer the essential question.

Stage 4: Understand

Students present and defend their findings, and reflect and evaluate their work in the Understand Stage. The ILU approach expects students to also
engage in extension activities where they can apply their new knowledge and take what they have learned a step further.
