This study was conducted by applying a quasi-experimental method for the students of Biology Education, Universitas Negeri Medan. Samples were taken by simple random sampling technique. The experimental group was taught by a contextual inquiry-based student’s worksheet, while the control group was taught by a conventional (traditional) student worksheet. The data collection was employed by pretest-posttest, using an essay test of higher order thinking skill for the topic of water microbiology. The results of data analysis used a student t-test for the post-test score of both groups, in which the results gave a value (tvalue= 0.144; p = 0.000) was 0.000 < 0.05. It showed that there was a significant difference between experimental group and control group as well.
