PENINGKATAN PROSES DAN HASIL BELAJAR IPA MENGGUNAKAN MODEL KOOPERATIF SNOWBALL THROWING DI SEKOLAH DASAR
This research is motivated by the low process and learning outcomes of elementary school students in grade IV SD Negeri No. 002/XI Pasar Sungai Penuh. So it is necessary to do research with the aim of improving the process and learning outcomes of science after using the cooperative model of the snowball throwing type. The research was carried out using classroom action research (CAR) which consisted of two cycles. Each cycle consists of four stages, namely planning, implementation, observation, and evaluation. The subject of this research is the fourth grade students of SD Negeri No. 002/XI Pasar Sungai Penuh as many as 28 people.
