Abstract

The implementation of science learning activities in Pematangsiantar City has not been optimal. Most of the teachers have not developed and used learning tools with the discovery learning method. The research objective was to determine the application of the discovery learning method to the science skills of kindergarten children through a scientific approach. The research method is quasi-experimental. To determine the effect of the application of the discovery learning method, learning was carried out in two classes, the experimental class and the control class. The results showed that there were differences in the value of science skills in the experimental class with the application of the discovery learning method with a comparison of the science skills scores of 24.64 before being given treatment and 29.92 after being given treatment. The application of discovery learning methods to science skills needs to be assisted and guided thoroughly.
