Abstract

The current study aimed to determine the effect of using the dry laboratory on the academic achievement of eighth-grade female students in science and their creative thinking skills in Aqaba Governorate. To achieve this goal, the researcher used the semi-experimental approach. The sample of the study included (84) eighth-grade students at Khadija Bint Khuwaylid Basic School in Aqaba Governorate, the study sample was divided into two groups; Experimental (42) female students who were taught using the dry laboratory, and a control group (42) female students who were taught by the traditional method. ‏ The two tools of the study were an achievement test (prepared by the researcher) , and the Torrance formal test (B) for creative thinking. The study concluded that there are statistically significant differences at the level of significance (α ≤ 0.05) in the post achievement test of the eighth-grade female students due to the teaching method in favor of the experimental group. The results also showed that there were statistically significant differences at the significance level (α ≤ 0.05) in all skills of the Torrance test for dimensional creative thinking among eighth grade female students, due to the teaching method in favor of the experimental group. Based on the results, the researcher recommended the need to use the dry laboratory method in teaching science and various scientific subjects, and to train teachers and school laboratory supervisors on how to apply this method.
