Chemical experiment is an important way to acquire scientific knowledge. Carrying out chemical experiment teaching through cooperative learning plays an important role in cultivating pupils' scientific literacy. However, the existing chemical experiment teaching in elementary school has weak cooperative awareness and unclear role positioning in the group. These problems hinder the scientific learning of primary school students. This study analyzed the advantages of the chemical experiment teaching mode from the perspective of cooperative learning. Based on the principles of chemical experiment teaching from the perspective of cooperative learning, this study proposed a new mode of cooperative learning for primary school chemistry experiments, and provided cases of cooperative learning for primary school chemistry, so as to explore how to improve students' scientific literacy.
