This study aims to: (a) design the description of the application of the scientific approach to science learning in elementary schools, (b) discuss whether there is an effect of scientific approaches to science learning on student motivation and students' learning outcomes in elementary schools. This type of research is a pre-experimental design with the design of one group pretest-posttest design. The variables of this study are independent variables and dependent variables. The independent variable is the scientific approach, and the dependent variables are learning motivation and science learning outcomes. The sample of this study is 12 teachers of the fifth-grade of elementary school and 406 students coming from 12 different elementary schools that apply K13 in Gowa Regency. Data collected includes observation techniques, questionnaires, tests, and interviews. The data were analyzed by SPSS version 2.2 statistical t-test technique. The results of the study show that: (a) a scientific approach to science learning is applied using 5M principle in thematic science teaching. However the 5M indicator has not been applied wholly, (b) students' learning motivation is fit to the "motivated" category, and (c) the students' learning outcomes are in the "good" category. In addition, there is an effect of the application of the scientific approach to science learning on students' learning motivation and learning outcomes. It is recommended that principals encourage teachers to develop their pedagogical competencies by attending workshops and apply a scientific approach to learning in all subjects in elementary school.
