Flipped Classroom is an instructional technique and a form of blended learning that reverses the conventional learning experience by providing online and outside the classroom educational content.. It consists of engaging activities, such as homework and discussions. In a flipped classroom, students watch online teaching and then collaborate with the teacher in online discussion (Sadiya & M. Farooque, 2020). Flipped mastery classrooms apply a mastery learning model that requires each student to master a topic before moving to the next one (Ramakrishnan et al., 2016). This study was conducted to find out the importance of using the Flipped Classroom to teach Health Education during movement control order (MCO) in Malaysia for Year Six students.
