Practicality test is carried out by using questionnaire responses of teachers and students after the learning process. Effectiveness testing on limited trials using experimental design pretest-posttest control group design. The results of this development study obtained product validity test obtained a score of 3.4 with the criteria of "very good". The practicality of the product in the learning process through the teacher's response and student responses obtained scores of 3.33 and 3.27 with the criteria of "very good".
