Abstrak— This research aims to develop products in the form of buy and sell transaction material with a method of payment using rubber beans for students in class VII SMP. The method used in this research is research and development developed by Thiagarajan. The research refers to the model 4D: define (defining), design, develop and disseminate (disseminate).

The implementation of learning media in the classroom can increase the students ' active participation, resulting in an increased critical thinking ability. This type of research is a quasi experiment, using control classes and experimental classes. The values obtained at the time of Pretests and Posttes in the experimental class indicate a significant difference. The experiment class values obtained 0.66 and the control class 0.53 by medium category. The effectiveness of learning is done by Manova test obtained the value of sig. 0.001 (< 0.05). The condition shows that the developed media is valid, practical and effective to use in the IPS learning process in class VII SMP.
