Abstract
Mastery of key academic subjects in school is not enough to succeed in the 21st century. Some specific skills, such as problem-solving, is needed. On the other hand, it is also important to foster understanding of academic content at much higher level by relating 21st-century interdisciplinary theme, such as health literacy, into key subjects. Thus, higher education institutions must prepare their students, especially those who will be a teacher in the future, to succeed in work and life by accomplishing problem-solving skills while learning key academic subjects. This research aims to develop a student worksheet that can enhance problem solving skills of natural science pre-service teachers weaved by physical exercise to maintain body endurance. The key academic subject in this research is the Human Movement which talks about muscle in the view of biomechanics and muscle metabolism during movement. The research method is descriptive quantitative with one group pre-test and post-test design. The data collection involves giving a test to students before and after the student worksheet was provided in the movement of human class. The results showed that the student worksheet could enhance students’ skills.
