Abstract

The purpose of this practical research was to discuss utility of a tangible learning system. For the purpose, the tangible learning system was implemented in a sixth-grade elementary school science class unit titled "The Phases of the Moon" and the scores of a mental rotation test (MRT) and a comprehension test were compared. Analysis of the results clearly indicates that activities based on active exploratory learning using a tangible learning system promote understanding for pupils with comparatively high mental rotation skills. Meanwhile, the results suggest the possibility that explanations from the teacher can facilitate understanding even for students with comparatively low mental rotation skills.
