Description

This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of toys made from recyclable materials in

teaching fluid mechanics. It also intended to measure the extent of interest and understanding of the students toward physics lessons and experiments that use toys in explaining the concepts specifically in Archimedes’ principle, Pascal’s law, and Bernoulli’s principle. The respondents of this study are the grade 12 students of Panciao High School during the school year 2019– 2020. The researcher utilized the experimental method of research and employed validated questionnaires that identified the performance of students and measured their attitudes toward physics lessons and experiments. The statistical tools used in this study included weighted mean, t-test for dependent and independent data, and standard deviation. The study revealed that there was an increase of performance after students utilized the different toys of the different topics in fluid mechanics. It was also found out that the two different toys for each topic have the same impact to the students’ post-test performances. Students enjoy the activities of the different topics of fluid mechanics because of the utilization of the different toys. Moreover, there is no significant relationship between the level of interest of the 6 groups of students utilizing 6 different localized toys and their respective post-test performances. In general, the toys made from recyclable materials in teaching fluid mechanics are effective in improving the conceptual understanding of the students, thus improving their performance.
