It was proved by the result of observation that there was improvement of the percentage of the students’ participation from 86% in Cycle 1 to 88.9% in Cycle 2. It means that the objectives of the research were successful. So, the English teacher was suggested to use Pop-up Pictures as alternative media for teaching vocabulary to improve students’ participation and the students’ vocabulary achievement.
