Through a constructivist approach, the purpose of this study is to find out the development of children in all areas of the curriculum and all domains of development, both physical and moral.

In learning using a constructivist approach gives children the opportunity to learn about moral issues and behavior in real experience.

The results of this study that the constructivist approach taken in the classroom makes children able to be autonomous and can make decisions, children can play games in groups through cooperation, and can conduct discussions or social and moral deliberations.
