Abstract: This study aims to develop and produce a product in the form of a based discovery learning practicum guidebook that can be used as practicum media. This research is categorized as development research. The research sample is students of second grade of 7th Manado senior high school. The number of examined students was 39 students of the experimental class. This research has developed guideline for discovery learning models that will help students learn to understand teaching subjects and working at lab in fascinating way. It using the learning devices development of 4D according to Thiagarajan, Semmel and Semmel. The development of this model has four stages which is defining, designing, developing and disseminating. Researcher only reaches the development stage. The results of the study concluded that the practical guidebook consisted of three parts, namely the front section consisting of the front cover, introduction, table of contents, student identity, and laboratory rules, then the contents sections contained the title, introduction, purpose, tools and materials, observation activities, applications and reference / library. The experimental steps have six stages according to discovery learning model. Character values are contained in the experimental steps and typed in bold. The manual is classified as valid criteria according to expert validation reaching a score of 93.75%. It is reliable for using in learning according to student responses through small-scale trials achieve a score percentage of 90.50%. Physics practicum guidebook based on discovery learning for simple harmonic motion material developed effectively for student learning outcomes are increase, students are more active and the noble character of students is more visible.
