    Abstract

    Student difficulty in understanding basic concepts and scientific knowledge is a major obstacle when achieving teaching objectives for Science subjects in primary schools. Abstract concepts and knowledge, which cannot be seen or touched, are important issues. Teaching strategies using media (video) can impact the learning process. This study examines the impact of using videos as a teaching strategy for delivering scientific knowledge to pupils in primary schools. Science is a core subjects in primary and secondary schools in Malaysia, so it is important to ensure that pupils do grasp the basic concepts. The study applied quantitative methods on a sample of 18 pupils in Year Five from one of the National Schools in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Data were analyzed using SPSS descriptive statistics and translated into tables and diagrams. The findings suggest that a video teaching strategy helps pupils improve their understanding of basic concepts and knowledge in Science classes. Pupils showed positive changes in attitude and interest, so learning Science can then become fun.
