This paper describes the study of students in blended learning environments for science classes at the elementary school level, focusing on motivational beliefs and self-regulated learning strategies. The students used the e-learning system “Science Net.” The students were asked to fill out the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire in order to analyze their learning strategies. Based on the results of the questionnaire, the students who used Science Net for preparation or review had a cognitive strategy use that was higher than the students who didn’t use it for preparation or review. From the result of the factor analysis, we found that the students’ recognition was different from the previous research as follows; the self-efficacy was divided into two types “comparing myself to friends” and “intelligibility and efforts.” The students’ scientific performance was related to their self-efficacy. The self-efficacy was strongly related to the self-regulated learning strategies.
