This article reports the findings of experiment teaching strategy which is typically practiced by the student teachers. In this study, student teachers are required to perform experiments and presented through teaching and learning styles in the classroom. The qualitative study was conducted among purposely selected 10 student teachers. Data were collected through video of the teaching and learning process and interviews. The findings showed the student teachers tend to perform the direct instruction or highly structured instruction which also known as the traditional approach of experiment in their teaching and learning presentation. The traditional approach mentioned here often referring as “recipe learning” which often engage the students to learn passively or during the whole experiment without engaging any thinking but follow the procedures given by teacher. Thus, the study had suggested the respondents to change or improve their teaching method while teaching experiment by implementing the inquiry strategy and constructivism approach.
