The research aim was to find out the improvement of biology achievement of the tenth grade students of science class at SMA Negeri 3 Lubuklinggau. The research method used was Classroom Action Research. The population was all of the tenth grade students of science class. The sampling technique was purposive sampling technique with 32 students as the samples. The instruments of data collection were observation sheets and tests.
