Abstract

This study aims to produce science content teaching materials based on a valid elaboration model to improve the critical thinking skills of fourth grade elementary school students. Teaching materials were developed using the 4-D model developed by Thiagarajan, et al (1974) which includes define, design, develop, and disseminate stages. The research instrument used was a teaching material validation sheet. The data analysis used is percentage. The results of the study revealed that elaboration-based science teaching materials had fulfilled the validity aspect because they had gone through the validation stage from the validator with an assessment based on 3 aspects, namely the content/material quality aspect on the material suitability indicator with basic competence obtaining an average percentage of 84%, material accuracy obtaining a percentage 78%, stimulating curiosity 93%, critical thinking 91%, use of the term symbol or icon in the material 76%, material presentation techniques 80%, learning support and presentation 88 %. In the aspect of design quality, the indicator size of teaching materials obtains a percentage of 87%, the cover design of teaching materials obtains a percentage of 95%, and the design of the contents of teaching materials 91%. In the aspect of language quality, the indicator for the use of the term symbol or icon obtains a percentage of 100% and conformity with language rules obtains a percentage of 91%. Teaching materials developed can improve critical thinking skills based on validation from validators who have obtained valid criteria.
