Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate how learning materials based on Science Magic activities affect student attitudes to science. A quasi-experimental design was conducted to explore the combination of Science Magic with the 5E Instructional Model to develop learning materials for teaching a science unit about friction. The participants were recruited from among the students of a middle school in central Taiwan. Based on our results, we conclude that our combined teaching method involving Science Magic activities and the 5E Instructional Model is effective for developing learning materials for teaching, and that this method improves students' attitudes toward science.
