This study aimed to describe the validity and produce worksheets based on Argument-Driven Inquiry in structure of plant cells and plant tissue material to train critical thinking skill for senior high school students. The method used in this research is ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation) development model. The phase carried out only reached the stage of student worksheets development. Student worksheets development  carried out in Biology Department, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Surabaya State University. The validity of student worksheets obtained from the validators using the validation sheet. The results showed that the worksheets was declaring to be very valid with an average score of 3.74. Based on the data obtained, it can be concluded that student worksheets developed declared feasible based on its validity and could be used in the learning process.
