The purpose of this study is to arrive at some concrete suggestions for a science curriculum reform of lower secondary school. This study was conducted through examining the contents of lower secondary school science which were considered important for students' daily lives from the viewpoint of science teachers. In order to construct a questionnaire, we analyzed the science curricula of lower secondary schools since World War II. The 269-item questionnaire, which includes contents of the first and the second field, was administered to 184 science teachers of lower secondary schools. Based on the findings of this investigation, we suggested three aspects for science curriculum reform: (1) consideration of declarative knowledge, (2) consideration of procedural knowledge, (3) clarification of necessity for knowledge acquisition.
