As a major global issue, climate change is one of the topics in the senior high school curriculum, specifically in the Earth Science subject. Designing instructional materials in which the learners can relate their personal experiences to climate change plays an important role in enriching their knowledge about climate change. This paper aims to develop and evaluate the use of contextualized activity sheets to improve grade 11 students’ knowledge on climate change using the PDSA framework. The researcher-made contextualized activity sheets are composed of six activities anchored to the Department of Education (DepEd) learning competencies. Experts in the field of science education and environmental science validated the contextualized activity sheets, where an overall mean rating of 4.51 is interpreted as Very Acceptable. In addition, pre-test and post-test on the climate change concept test were administered to 157 students to measure the students’ knowledge. The results showed that the use of the contextualized activity sheets has a significant difference on the students’ knowledge on climate change from the pre-test and post-test, while the Cohen’s d result indicated that it has a medium effect on students’ knowledge. These results suggest that the contextualized activity sheets can enrich the students’ knowledge on climate change and can still be enhanced to suit the needs of other learners from different localities.
