The quantitative research to measure understanding concepts by using test. Qualitative research to measure learning motivation by using questionnaires and to describe learning plane figure using fable. The data were statistically analyzed with SPSS 19, that is, independent sample t-test and Mann Whitney. The subject of this study were 52 fourth graders of elementary school which comprises two classes, participated in this study. Data collection techniques used tests and questionnaires. The study results are as follows: First, students’ improved concept understanding indicated from the fact that the experimental class is higher than the control one, and second, students’ learning motivation is moderate, which is indicated from a gain score of 0.55.
