This action research aimed to develop the problem-based learning approach with role playing model for encourage environmental literacy in photosynthesis contents. The participants were 45 students in Phitsanulok Province. The research tools consisted of 3 lesson plans, reflective journals, environmental activity sheets and environmental literacy tests. The process of action research had been proceed 3 cycles, and this research used content analysis with method triangulation and resource triangulation for reliability of data. The results showed that there were 6 steps the problem-based learning approach with role playing model. Step 1: define story, instructor determine the actual situation and being close to the students with using illustrations to explain the situation. step 2: group discussion and identify topic, instructor asks questions related to the situation in order to instruct students to share, analyze and discuss problems.

Step 5: assessment of outcomes, students choose the best solution for solving environmental problem together. Step 6: presentation and evaluation, students present ways to solving environmental problems by acting in a role play and plan the best way to solving environmental problems together with other groups. In addition, the results showed that after learning management with the problem-based learning approach with role playing, the environmental literacy of students were developed.
