Abstract

The purposes of this research were 1) to compare learning achievement of mathayomsuksa four students by inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond, 2) to compare critical thinking skill of mathayomsuksa four students by inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond, and 3) to study students’ satisfaction toward learning through inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond. The sample was 41 mathayomsuksa four students studying in the first semester of the academic year 2019 at Mathayomprachaniwet secondary school in the service of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, selected by purposive sampling. There were five sets of research instruments; inquiry - based learning lesson plan, learning achievement test, critical thinking skill test, satisfaction assessment and hands – on kit. The data were analyzed by using mean, percentage, standard deviation and t – test for dependent samples.


           The results indicated that: 1) Students had higher learning achievement than before after learning through inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond at the .05 level of confidence. 2) Students had higher critical thinking skill than before after learning through inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond at the .05 level of confidence. And 3) Students’ satisfaction toward learning through inquiry – based learning with hands – on activity on Covalent bond as was at the highest level.
