The sample of the study consists of 48 students studying in the 10th grade. 48 students, which formed the sample, randomly formed Experiment 1 and Experiment 2 groups.

The study is a quantitative research and the data were collected by using pretest-posttest with a quasi-experimental control group. The "Ecosystem Ecology" success testthat was developed by the researcher was applied as the pre-test and post-test in the study as the data collection tool.
