- The research aims to develop ethno-science based module for material and its characteristics in order to know the feasibility, learning achievement, and student responses to the module. Population for this research was student of class VII SMPN 8 and SMPN 14 Banda Aceh. Samples were purposively choose and divided into two types which are 58 students for class of experiment and 59 students for class of control. This research is one of development research by using model of ADDIE. Ethno-science based module was implemented using quasi experimental method with pretest and posttest control group design. Data were collected using validation test, written test and questionnaire. The data were analyzed using several methods such as percentages, N-gain and t-test. The results showed that the developing module was feasible to be used with the score percentage of 92.15% and 92.87% given by experts and science teachers, respectively. In addition, N-gain accompanied by t-test obtained tcount>ttable (3.987> 1.984) which represented that there is any difference of student learning outcomes between class of control and class of experiment, where the class of experiment showed the higher results than class of control. Besides that, the students also gave positive responses to the module. Therefore, it can be concluded that ethno-science based module is feasible to be used and increased the student learning outcomes, indicated by positive responses of students.
