Abstract: One of the major problems faced by teacher is that students are not motivated to learn and fail to class participation. To maintain motivation and students’ classroom engagement, individual motivation can be influenced with the help of different motivational strategies. A major objective of the study was to identify the students’ classroom engagement at elementary level. This true experimental study (pre-test post test control group design) was conducted in a public school of Punjab province at elementary level. During this experimental study five different motivational strategies (worksheets, puzzles and hands-on activities, encouragement, rewards & punishment) were used to cover the content from the 7th class general science PTB book for a period of 2 months. SCRES was used to administer pre-test and post-test. After the intervention, findings of the study revealed that by using independent sample t-test experimental group engaged fully not as behaviorally, emotionally as well as cognitively as compared to the control group. It also depicted that “engaged students” were capable of doing their work with enthusiasm, commitment and keen interest and trying to command mastery over their learning to achieve the highest results; whereas “disengaged students” do their work but without commitment and interest. It was recommended that different types of motivational strategies be introduced in the curriculum of PTBB at primary and elementary level to completely engage the students. Key words: Motivational strategies, Students’ Classroom Engagement, Science
