The teacher had provided opportunities for the students to ask some questions by walking over and pointing at the student to ask about the lesson. But, it was only conducted in the first and second meetings. Meanwhile, the implementation of associating stage was still bad. The teacher was only able to do this stage in the third meeting by giving the students task individually. This research also revealed that teacher’s motivation, perception, and experience were internal factors while media and environment were external factors influenced English teacher’s activities in implementing the scientific approach of the 2013 curriculum.
