The purpose of this study is to investigate Life Sciences course entrepreneurship skills of the 3rd grade primary school students as evaluated by their parents. The study was conducted with the screening model. The participants of the study were the parents (47 mothers and 23 fathers) of the students (32 girls, 38 boys) who study in the center of the province of Adiyaman, Turkey, in the academic year of 2017-2018. In order to collect the data, “entrepreneurship skill condition” survey form, which evaluates the entrepreneurial gains from the 1st and 2nd grade Life Sciences course, was used. According to the findings, the entrepreneurship skill level of the students was found 98.81 out of 130, which is “good”. The entrepreneurship skill level of the students showed a significant difference depending on the parent variable, where mothers evaluated their children more favorably compared to fathers. The entrepreneurship skill level of the students did not show a significant difference depending on their gender. Depending on their success in the school and the Life Sciences course, however, there was a significant difference (p<0.05) in their entrepreneurship skill level. A positive correlation was detected between the entrepreneurship skill level and the success in the school and the Life Sciences course. The entrepreneurship skill level of the students also varied significantly (p<0.05) depending on their self-confidence level. High self-confidence and the entrepreneurship skill level were found to be positively correlated.
