The rapid changes bring with the tide of globalization. To promote national development in upcoming knowledge economy and information technology, cultivation of talent becomes an important issue. School education must also be amended and adjusted. In daily life, the relationship of public and technology products is closer and thus the cultivation of scientific literacy is much more important. Therefore, researcher focus on science education in this study. In the traditional school education, teaching emphasis on knowledge learning. Teachers usually use direct instruction as the main teaching method, and students tend to mastery learning to get high scores in pencil-and-paper test. To adapt modern social life, Grade 1-9 Curriculum Guidelines especially shows that students obtain the knowledge and ability by scientific inquiry and experience of life. However, field instructor didn’t own this kind of learning process this day. To help instructors produce more profitable instructional events, researcher investigates instruction design of nature science in this study. First, the study used document analysis to discover acceptable instructional objectives of nature science. Then researcher conducted focus group of a group of field instructors to analysis the instructional objectives. The result is to discover an instructional objectives that reach the curriculum goal of Grade 1-9 Curriculum Guidelines and 12-year Basic Education, and meet the instructor’s demand. Researcher expect this study could serve as a sample for science education related area.
