The aim of this study is to examine the shortcomings of the character instructional/education approach in the Indonesian national primary school curriculum and to establish a conceptual approach to character instructional/education that is capable of instilling the characters found in the content of the social studies topic in primary schools. This thesis employed a descriptive methodology. The findings of this study revealed that (1) the scientific learning method could only establish scientific attitudes and character in students, while other attitudes and character could be developed in other ways. The implementation of the integrated scientific instructional/education method was able to instil the values of attitudes and characters found in the content of social studies to the students, and (2) the application of the integrated scientific instructional/education approach was able to instil the values of attitudes and characters contained in the content of social studies to the students. The student’s perceptions of information, whether positive or negative, will shape attitudes, attitudes will form habits, and habits will shape character.
