Abstract

School-aged children have a street snacks consumption behavior. They do not know the ingredients of hazardous materials that are usually found in their street snacks. The Think Pair Share (TPS) is an active learning that usually used in a learning process to increase knowledge. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to explain the effect of TPS learning model to increase school-aged children's healthy snack consumption behavior. The study used quasi experimental design. The populations were five graders student in elementary school. The samples were 46 students that taken by total sampling. The independent variable was thought pair share learning model and the dependent was knowledge, attitude, and actions. Data were collected by using questionnaire and observation form. Data analyzed by using Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test and Mann Whitney U Test with a significant level of ≤0.05. The results of intervention group show that TPS had a significant effect on knowledge (p=0.002) and actions (p=0.034), but had not the significant effect in attitude (p=0.705). Think pair share learning model is effective to improve the behavior election in a healthy snack for school-aged children. It is recommended for nurses to apply the think pair share to providing health education to school-aged children.
