The aim of the research was to examine the relationship between primary school students' environmental awareness and basic science process skills based on various variances. Within relational research model, the research was conducted with 332 grade 3 and 4 students. Primary School Environmental Awareness Scale and Basic Skills Scale were used to collect data. Demographic features were employed to determine the students' educational level, gender and class. In light of the results, the significant relationship between their basic science skills and environmental awareness was detected. A significant difference between the total scores of life in nature and environmental awareness scale was observed in favor of female students. Any significant difference was not found between subdimensions and total scores of environmental awareness over class level. The type of school significantly impacted their basic science process skills and level of environmental awareness. The differences which were found were in favor of private schools for both scales.
