ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this research was to develop a guide material in line with learning outcomes of the unit for the 5th Graders titled Solving the Puzzle: Our Body in order to be utilized during out-of-school learning activities by science teachers. There is no guide material developed in our country for science teachers to be used in out-of school learning activities. This research intended to contribute to the literature by developing such guide material. This research utilized the screening model. Prior to the development of a guide material, the literature has been reviewed to identify units and subjects for which guidance material is designed for. Moreover, the guide material is developed after completing the needs analysis, identifying the objectives and learning outcomes, organizing the content and learning activities and deciding on how to make assessment and evaluation. This research was designed to help develop guide materials that include other units related to out-of-school learning activities for different grade levels and for different classes.
