Learning resources that are contextual with the nature, social condition, and culture become very important in the learning of social sciences. The aim of this study is to identify the socioeconomic and cultural phenomena of the natural stone artisans which can be used as a worksheet for social sciences in school. This study is a research and development divided into three research stages. First, the researchers conducted a qualitative naturalistic study on the community of natural stone artisans. Second, the researchers formulated the results of the ethno science study which then will be used as a source of learning through an assessment of the social sciences curriculum. Last but not least, the researchers designed and developed the worksheets based on the results of the study. The results showed that the natural stone artisans have the knowledge, attitude, and value as well as skills in determining the factors of production, production processes, and distribution with the marketing system. It is also found that they are able to manage the existing natural resources. This phenomenon is then used as a learning source to understand the concept of production, distribution, and consumption as well as to build the value of environmentalism to the students in the context of social sciences.
