Abstract

The problem was to set up a classroom situation in which fifth and sixth grade students were able to use the study of magnetism, electricity, and electronics in such a way that interest and motivation toward regular curricular studies could be stimulated. The following devices were chosen to evaluate the experiment: (1) interest and motivational questionnaires, (2) a science completion test, (3) The Iowa Basic Skills Test, and (4) the behavior journal.
