Application of Mind Mapping through Project Based Learning Models to Improve Learning Outcomes Content of Natural Sciences Elementary School
Keywords:learning outcomes, mind mapping, natural science, project based learning
The research background is the low learning outcomes of fifth grade students in Natural Science content. The purpose of this research is to improve the learning outcomes of fifth grade students in Natural Science content by applying Mind Mapping through the Project Based Learning model in elementary schools. The type of research used in this study was Collaborative Classroom Action Research (PTKK) with the Kemmis and Mc Taggart model in two cycles. The research subjects were 19 class V students. This research was conducted in the even semester of the 2022/2023 academic year. Data collection is done by observation, documentation and tests. The data analysis technique used is quantitative. The results of this study indicate that the application of Mind Mapping through the Project Based Learning model improves student learning outcomes in the fifth grade Natural Science content. This can be shown from the learning outcomes of students who experience an increase starting from the pre-cycle stage to cycle 2 where initially the average learning outcomes of students are in the pre-cycle of 47.36%, then the first cycle is 63.15% and the second cycle is 84.21%.
