Abstract: The study sought to find out how Primary VI pupils' achievement and retention of knowledge of magnetism could be enhanced through the use of guided discovery learning approach in a covid 19 preventive protocol. Two research questions and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The non-equivalent quasi-experimental research design was adopted. The sample consisted of 178 (92 boys and 86 girls) Primary VI pupils drawn through simple random sampling technique from 21 public primary schools in Jos North West of Plateau State. The instruments used for data collection were the Magnetism Achievement Test (MAT) and the Magnetism Retention Test(MRT). Data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) for the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study revealed that the use of guided discovery learning approach enhanced Primary VI pupils' achievement and retention of knowledge of magnetism. It was recommended among others that guided discovery learning approach should be adopted in teaching magnetism by science teachers to enhance pupils' achievement and retention in a covid 19 preventive protocol.
