The aim of this research is to investigate asking questions of fourth grade primary school teachers and students related to the Turkish Lessons in terms of the revised Bloom taxonomy. In this research, "case study" pattern of qualitative research method is used. Participants of the research are 242 fourth grade students from five different primary school and their classroom teachers in the central district of Trabzon province. In the research, in order to determine the asking question skills, students and teachers are asked to prepare questions related to the texts which are narrative and informative and answer those questions. The questions prepared by students and teachers are revised and analyzed according to revised Bloom's taxonomy and their cognitive levels are determined. In addition, teachers are interviewed in order to determine their opinions about their works related to the asking question skills in Turkish Lesson and asking question skills of students. As a result of the research, it is found that the questions prepared by students are teachers are at lower cognitive level and teachers do not enough studies to improve their asking question skills. In the light of the findings, some suggestions are developed both to improve asking question skills of students in primary school Turkish Lessons and for the later studies.
