wayang suket is one of the nine types of wayang puppet found in the city of Surakarta, Indonesia (Wardani, 2014). wayang suket can be described as wayang puppets made of grass (suket). These grass puppets are created to represent human beings or animals. wayang suket, as a cultural product of Indonesia, is appropriate for introduction to students. Teachers, as classroom learning facilitators, can use creatively made wayang suket as a learning model, thus enabling students to better absorb the materials and character traits of the wayang suket stories. This article explains the use of an integrative-creative learning model that can be applied in Indonesian-language and culture education lessons for students in the fourth year of elementary school. This research finds that: (1) creative learning is learning planned by teachers to include a variety of activities that can meet the needs of students with varying capacities. This learning is conditioned by the teacher in a fun and entertaining atmosphere; (2) an integrative creative learning model, based on wayang suket, was implemented through lessons focusing on listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Activities included students making wayang suket and using these puppets for role-playing.
