AbstractThe main purpose of this study is toexamine the effects of leisure education practices using different teachingmethods. In this study, quasi-experimental research methodology has been usedin the framework of pretest - posttest design without the use of a controlgroup. In total, 155 students between the age of 9-13 (experimental I group: 76students, experiment II group: 79 students) were selected through a conveniencesampling method. The Leisure Education Scale (LES) developed by Munusturlar(2014) was used to measure leisure education levels of students in the study.In order to examine the difference between the pretest- posttest measurementsof groups I and II; Paired Sample T-Test has been used as a parametric test.The Independent Samples T-Test was used to examine the difference between thepretest-posttest access results of experimental groups I and II. As a result ofthe statistical analyses, it was determined that the leisure education scoreaverages in the experimental groups I and II were significantly different infavor of the posttest. When the difference between the pretest-posttest accessresults of the two groups was examined, it was found that the leisure educationhad a significant difference in favor of the experimental group I that experiencedplay-based teaching method in the sub-dimensions of problem-solving and socialinteraction skills. As a result, it can be concluded that both lecture-teachingand play-based teaching methods are effective in terms of leisure educationapplications.
