This study is to find out whether analogy is able to aid students in improving their understandings about the Cell Structure” topic. This study was conducted on 50 students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama Sheikh Abdul Malek, Kuala Terengganu. The main objective of the study was to find quantifiable data relating to respondent’s understanding and their improvements about Cell Structure through analogy teaching strategy. Two sets of question were used as the instrument to collect the data. In eliciting the data for this research, an experimental study was conducted involving teaching the experimental group with the analogy approach and control group with the traditional teaching method. Pre-test and the post-test were administered and data were then gathered from both tests to be analyzed. Data is analyzed by using paired sample t-test and other fundamental statistics calculation. The t-value obtained from this research is -6.741 which is outside the range of lower and upper 95% of confidence interval of difference and the hypothesis is rejected. So, the finding of the study showed that there is improvement in students’ understandings about Cell Structure when they were taught using analogy approach. In this research, analogy has been used as a medium to construct conceptual change about cell structure among form four students.
