Abstract
This research aims
know (the effectiveness of
using class activities in
acquiring and sustaining
geographical concepts by
the students of the firstyear
intermediate schools).
To achieve this aim, the
researcher has constructed
tow nil hypotheses:
1.Statistically there is no
significant relation at(0,05)
level between the average
marks of the experimental
group taught by using class
activities and of the
controlled group taught by
traditional method in the test
of acquiring geographical
concepts.
2. There is not such a
significant relation also
between the two group in
the test of sustaining
geographic concepts.
The research has been
conducted on the first- year
intermediate and secondary
morning schools for girls,
belonging to the general
directory of education in
Karbala.
The sample, which was
chosen from the first- year
students of summaye
intermediate school,
randomly consists of (68)
students.
The material to be tested
was the first four chapters
from the textbook of
geography, principles of
general geography for the
first- year intermediate
schools (20) geographical
concepts were identified,
and (112) behavioral goals .
The test of acquiring
geographical concepts
consists of (60) items of
multiple- choice type in
agreement with the three
processes of measuring the
acquiring of
concepts(defining the
concept- recognizing the
concept- applying the
concept) the test was
assured for its validity,
reliability and psychometric
features.
The data were analyses
by using(t-test) the results
showed that the
experimental group which
was taught by using class
activities has surpassed the
second group taught by
traditional method in both
tests acquiring geographical
concepts test, and
sustaining geographical
concepts test.
In the light of the findings
obtained, the researcher put
forward the following
recommendations:

activities as a fundamental
component of lesson
planning.
2.Having booklets or leaflets
to explain the goals of
educational class activities
for all stages to help
teachers of social sciences
when teaching these
subjects.
3.Constructing training
courses for teachers of
geography to be aware of
the importance and use of
these educational class
activities
The researcher suggests
that the following studies
should be carried out: -
1.Conducting a similar study
for other different stages
and other variables such as
creative thinking and
problem solving.
2. Conducting a similar
study for other subjects.
