Abstract
This research aims at: (1) develop an integrated thematic learning instrument based on environment in the sub-theme "Gaya dan Gerak" (force and motion) for the fourth grade students in Sekolah Dasar Negeri (State Elementary School) – SD N Nogopuro, and (2) determine the effectiveness of the integrated thematic learning instruments based on environment in the sub-theme "Gaya dan Gerak" for the fourth grade students in SD N Nogopuro. The research method employed research and development with the suggested model from Dick & Carey consisting of 10 stages. The data was collected by interview, assessment sheet for the product of learning kit, observation sheet for the teacher, observation sheet for learners, learning outcomes tests and teachers' questionnaire responses. The research instruments and products were validated through expert judgment in case of material and evaluation. Data analysis techniques made use of both qualitative and quantitative techniques. Qualitative data analysis techniques were used to determine the predicate of product feasibility, while quantitative data analysis techniques were used to determine the effectiveness of the use of learning tools products that had been developed. The quantitative analysis techniques used paired sample t-test method to know the difference of pretest and posttest in one class, and independent sample t-test to know the difference result of posttest in the experiment and control class with the significance level of 0.05 with the assistance of SPSS program. The results indicated that the learning instruments consisting of syllabus, lesson plans, teaching materials, and test results of learning outcomes were feasible according to the validator, the elementary school teachers. Based on the paired sample t-test analysis, it was found that there were differences in learning outcomes in each class. The result of the independent sample of t-test with Sign. 0,000 indicated that there were outcomes differences in experimental and control class as the implementation result of integrative thematic learning instruments based on the environment in the sub-theme of "Gaya dan Gerak". It means that learning with integrative thematic learning instruments is better than the conventional tools
