Abstract

The scientific method is a popular mechanism through which science teachers can impact students’ cognitive domains and academic nature. The purpose of this study is to analyze the implementation of the scientific method of teaching social science subjects and educational character in the affective domain. To do so, we engaged in research using quasi- experimental methods. A random sample of 40 students was chosen. Data were collected using a questionnaire on students’ character consisting of three aspects: reasoning, feeling, and behavior. The data have a normal distribution with a significant value of 0.966 and are homogeneous with a significant value of 0.100 > 0.05. The data were analyzed using a paired sample T -test. The character value of social studies learners, after being taught using the scientific method, was higher than ever with a significance of 0.000 < 0.05. The character of students in the affective domain was influenced by the feelings aspect resulting from the scientific method. Thus, using the scientific method in educational interventions improved the character of fifth-grade elementary school students. Keywords: Affective domain, elementary school, character education, scientific method
