Introduction
The major problem of this study is to determine the effectiveness of scientific games as a strategy in teaching chemistry to Third Year students of EARIST Laboratory High School in Nagtahan, Sampaloc, Manila.For the purpose of the study, the researcher formulate a hypothesis,thatthere is a significant difference in the chemistry achievement test of studentsexposed to scientific games strategy and those who were taught using thetraditional method.This study utilized the true experimental design employing the pre-test andpost-test. The respondents of the study were twenty two (22) Third Year studentsof EARIST Laboratory High School, during the school year 2007-2008. Theywere divided into two groups and randomly assigned to experimental and controlgroup. The experimental group were exposed to actual application using 4

scientific games as motivation while the control group were exposed to thetraditional method only.The statistical treatment of data involves the computation of mean, standarddeviation, and t-test.From the above findings the following conclusion are made.Interactive method using scientific games and traditional methods of teaching areequally effective in teaching selected topics in chemistry. But the students on theexperimental group learned very well not only theories but also in skills on how toapply a particular example of each topic.Based from the findings and conclusion formulated in this research study,the following recommendations are hereby proposed. Science teachers can usegames to enrich their science teaching. This strategy can be used to arouse andenhance their interests to learn the subject matter. Science teachers shouldexplore the used of other...
