Abstract
The phenomenon showed that the level of critical thinking ability of children aged 5-6 years was low. This paper used quasi experimental nonequivalent group pretest - postest designed which applied purposive sampling techniques. The results showed that there was an impact of farming to children’s critical thinking ability of kindergarten’s students in Indonesia (t-count>t-table; 1.205 > 0.05). Additionally, it revealed that 76.47% of children were able to solve simple problems while 88.23% of children were able to complete their own tasks. It can be concluded that the ability of children to solve their own problems and to complete tasks when facing difficulties were low. In line with cognitive development, critical thinking can be developed in early childhood by using materials and methods that actively involved children to assist them to construct their own knowledge such as farming. Through that activity, children stimulated to do observing, identifying and analyzing.
