Abstract

The character of a country can be seen from the character of its citizens. Character education should be taught as early as possible from the age of children.Curiosity needs to be owned by everyone. Having the attitude of curiosity, students can know what is happening, can feel what is happening and can act in accordance with the moral they have to do something. Curiosity is an attitude and action that always strives to know more deeply and broadly from something that is learned, seen, and heard. Curiosity needs to be taught through character education. Character education, especially students’ curiosity , can be taught using cooperative learning. In cooperative learning, students are asked to develop theirthoughts to do more meaningful learning activities, to carry out their inquiry activities for all topics taught optimally, and to develop the students’ curiosity throughquestions, as well as to create a learning community.
