In this chapter, the methods and procedures used in the study is discussed under the following headings:
Research design 
Population of the study 

Methods of Integrated Science Learning

Basically, there are two methods in learning of integrated science, these are: 
i. Expository Method: By expository is meant verbal explanation or discussion. This method is sometimes referred to as lecturing. It is the most frequently used in the teaching, and learning of integrated science.

1.1. Background of the Study 

In recent studies, student’s interest in education have been measured by various scholars in terms of their attitude towards school subjects. A student who has negative attitude towards some subjects has
shown a signal of poor attitude and interest in education. Similarly, some researchers have linked poor academic achievements of students in recent times to the low level of interest they have on school subjects.
