This study examined how a teaching method based on building process of theory cultivates humanities and gives a particular cognition method of particle discipline. A scientific theory can be perceived as an observable individual phenomenon holistically, however, it can be difficult to be proved directly. For this reason, it is built through following points. The probability of a theory is increased by doing a hypotheticodeductive experiment, rejecting alternative theories, and the theory having not been disproved. The teaching method based on this building process of theory was practiced for elementary school students (5th grade) on study of the dissolution of substances. The results indicated that this teaching method achieved the purpose of study.
