Abstract: Critical thinking is one of the higher order thinking skills. It can be developed with sasirangan as South Borneos’ culture that translating real science to scientific science or ethnoscience. This study aims to find (1) the difference in critical thinking skill, (2) difference in learning outcome, and (3) students’ respon. This study used a quasi-experimental method with nonequivalent control group design. The samples were 69 students from XI IPA 2 and XI IPA 3 SMAN 1 Banjarmasin. Data collecting techniques were tested for critical thinking skill, test for knowledge learning outcome, observation, questionnaire, and documentation. The data has been analyzed by using descriptive and inferential analysis. The results are (1) there is significant difference in critical thinking skill, (2) there is significant difference in knowledge learning outcome, and average value of attitude and skill learning outcome of the experimental class had better result than the control class, and (3) students are responding positively to the practice of Problem Based Learning model assisted with sasirangan ethnoscience student worksheet on colloid material.
