The purpose of this study was to explore the way teachers manage their students, in order to increase their involvements in science practical work. This qualitative case study studied three experienced science teachers by garnering data through teachers’ observation, students’ interview and analysis of students’ documents. All data were analyzed manually. This study found that students’ involvement in science practical are high when the teacher manage the students by dividing them into a group of three to five, and by disseminating the work. Additionally, it was also found that patrolling and checking the students’ progress during practical session, giving out positive rewards and cooperation from lab assistant in monitoring students, did help in increasing students’ involvement during practical work.
