In this study, the relationship of values in elementary school 4th grade Social Studies textbook with the attainments and their level of being included in student workbook are tried to be determined. Case study, which is a qualitative research method, was applied for this research. To collect data, document analysis technique, which is among the qualitative research techniques, was used. The Social Studies Course Workbook included in this research was accepted as a course book for five years by Ministry of Education, Head Council of Education and Morality. The workbook was prepared as an assistance tool. The textbook set (textbook, workbook, teacher's book), which is taught in Duzce province and was decided to be used, was provided and some comparisons were made to control whether there are any deficiencies (some missing parts, etc.) because of press. After making sure that there are not any deficiencies, the analysis procedure was started. Some of the results that can be derived from the research can be summarized as; some attainments are not related to values; all the values are included in workbook, but some activities are not sufficient; the value of being scientific is given by an activity that was designed according to positivist mentality.
