The results showed that the creative components in the content of the experimental science curriculum of both countries were highest in the aspect of mental readiness, concept extraction, purposeful observation and flexibility and decreased in the stages of imagination, development, and action, respectively. The content also emphasizes more memory and less attention to other aspects of creativity. Overall, the content of the experimental Science Curriculum in Iran 742 and Afghanistan 669 is a creative 87 in the fourth-grade book and 10 in the sixth-grade textbook compared to the content of Afghanistan's empirical science curriculum and in the fifth grade in the country 24 in comparison with the fifth grade textbook in Iran.
