School-age children are susceptible to injuries that can cause cuts and potentially infection, but children’s knowledge of wound care is still lacking. The study aims were to analyze the influence of Short Education Movies (SEMs) and demonstration methods on the wound care of elementary students. The study was quasi-experimental with a control group pre- post-test design. A total of 40 out of 181 elementary students in Peneket and Sidorejo were taken as respondents through simple random sampling. The independent variable was Short Education Movies (SEMs) and demonstration methods. The dependent variables were knowledge, attitude and practical wound care. The data was collected using questionnaires and observations. The data was analyzed using the Wilcoxon signed rank test and the Mann Whitney U Test. The results showed that health education using the SEM and demonstration method can increase the knowledge(p=0.000), attitude (p=0.001) and practices (p=0.000) of the intervention group. The Mann Whitney test in the intervention group and the control group obtained the following results: knowledge (p=0.002), attitude (p=0.000) and practice (p=0.000). The application of SEM and the demonstration method is effective when applied to elementary students because it is easily understood.
