Abstract

The research was motivated by the results of the National Final Exam School Year 2016/2017 at Pauh Elementary School. It turns out that the average value of natural science is lower than in other subjects. The purpose of this study was to look at the activities of teachers in teaching science in elementary schools in Pauh sub-district. This type of research is descriptive research to see, review and describe the conditions that exist in the field regarding the activities carried out by elementary school teachers. The chosen place is a public elementary school in the Pauh sub-district area of Padang, specifically the fifth grade. Results of the research show that teacher skills in conducting activities that involve students actively, arouse students' motivation, learn demonstration activities are still in an insufficient category. It is concluded that some teachers in Public Elementary School in Pauh sub-district have conducted activities in science learning. The implication of this research is as a foundation for the development of science learning in the future.
