The objective of this study is to understand the improvement of students’ inquiry skills after the application of learning cycle E model. Study was motivated by students’ low level of inquiry skills according to results showed by previous study conducted at the same school. This study employed quasi experiment method. For research design, this study employed one group pretest-posttest. Sample of this research were the eleventh grade students in a high school selected through the purposive sampling technique. Data collection was done using test of inquiry skills. Trial data was analyzed using the product moment. Aspect of inquiry skills measured were observing, measuring, designing an experiment, controlling variabels, interpreting data, creating bar graphs, and predict.
