Integrative thematic teaching materials are learning procedures teachers in Indonesia must carry out as a form of implementation of the Thematic Curriculum (2013). The values of local wisdom need to be taught to students as a form of cultural preservation and the formation of national character. This study explains the ability of thematic curriculum teaching materials (2013) to accommodate the values of local wisdom in Palopo City. This article aims to collect information about the values of local wisdom in integrative thematic teaching materials. The research method is descriptive and qualitative by using surveys to collect data. The research instrument was a questionnaire randomly distributed to respondents through a Google form. The study subjects were elementary school teachers in Palopo City, with 161 respondents. The results showed that information about the local wisdom of Luwu land (Palopo) was not found generally in the Thematic Curriculum student book (2013), which had an impact on students' understanding of the values of local wisdom in their area was very low. It was concluded that integrative thematic teaching materials had yet to accommodate the values of local wisdom in Luwu (Palopo) land, so teachers need integrative thematic teaching materials based on local wisdom values to teach local culture to students.
