The aim of this study is to develop an instructional design model for science laboratory instruction. Well-known ID models were analysed and Dick and Carey model was imitated to produce a science laboratory instructional design (SLID) model. In order to validate the usability of the designed model, the views of 34 high school teachers related to SLID’s steps were gathered via a survey. The survey results on the basis of necessity of SLID’s elements showed that the mean of the items was extremely high. Statistical analysis on teachers’ views about SLID across teachers’ gender, subject and school type resulted in no differences. The outcome of this study, that is SLID, is expected to enhance the process of teaching and learning science in laboratory setting.
