The purpose of this study was to identify the main laboratory instruction types with Classification Scheme of Laboratory Instruction (CSLI) in elementary and secondary schools science. For the purpose, the validity of the instrument CSLI was 4.23 and laboratory instructions were collected in 100 elementary schools and 30 secondary schools. Before analyzing the collected laboratory instructions, the inter-rater reliability about the analysis results was identified as 0.91. The results of this study were found that in elementary school, the main laboratory instruction types were verification type and discovery type and in secondary school were discovery type and verification type. In the category of the procedure, a large part of the procedures of laboratory activity in both elementary and secondary schools was given to students by worksheets or teachers themselves. In the category of approach, inductive approach was the main in elementary and deductive approach in secondary.
