  •  Serpil Ozkurt Sivrikaya    


Science education tries to develop students thinking, linking, analyzing by embodying an abstract concept. The modeling method is used as one of the methods used in science education. This research in 2018-2019 academic year at Kocaeli Vocational School, was applied to students who are taking the course. In this survey, the qualitative method is preferred. The sample which consists of 22 people research and control groups involves 44 students. In the research, the pre-interview-final interview method was used for experimental and control groups. In the study; all the students were asked about the subject before the topic was told. Then the subject was explained to the experimental group by modeling method. The control group was told only verbally. Qualitative research was performed and data and significance analysis were used. As a result of this research, the carbon cycle, which plays an important role in the survival of the world, should be taught to students using materials that significantly affect learning.
