Blended learning is a relatively new technology-based teaching approach. Few attempts have been made to use this approach in science education in India. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of blended learning approach on academic achievement in science of students of elementary VII class. This quantitative experimental study involved 70 VII class students, from two schools of Noida region of Uttar Pradesh, India. The students were randomly divided into two groups: 30 were taught by the traditional approach (face-to-face) and 40 taught by blended learning approach (both electronic and face-to-face). The effect of blended learning was evaluated from students’ performance in the achievement test. It was found that the achievement of the students taught through blended learning was statistically significantly better than traditional learning .The findings suggest that elementary students, are open to new methods of learning. The blended learning approach is an effective method for teaching science and may be applicable to other school subjects.
