The experimental part of the research was implemented from April to June 2010. A total of 196 seventh grade pupils participated.

Teaching biology in the control groups was carried out by using traditional methods, while in experimental groups in the part of the lesson was introduced the game. The effect of introducing the game was tested by checking the knowledge and by final survey. Survey results indicated that the best results were achieved by using games in teaching biology at the beginning of the lesson, during the motivation phase.
