This study aims to develop thematic lesson plan based on character, which uses the Problem Based Learning and Backward Design models that are feasible and effective to foster the social behavior of fifth grade students in elementary schools. The type of research used in this study refers to the theory of Borg & Gall. The population in this study were educators grade V North Metro Elementary School. The sample was determined using a purposive sampling technique of 8 educators from grade V public elementary schools 1 North Metro, public elementary school 2 North Metro, public elementary school 3 North Metro, public elementary school 4 North Metro, and state elementary school 5 North Metro. Data is collected through questionnaire sheets, observations and test results. Theoretical Feasibility of the Lesson Plan is based on the assessment of several experts who obtained an average score of 83,07  in the "very good" category. The empirical feasibility of the RPP is based on the analysis of items on the validity, reliability, difference power, and difficulty level test. Hypothesis testing shows that social behavior achieved by students who use Lesson Plan based on character gets more effective observation results than those who do not use Lesson Plan based on character.
