The study aimed to identify the impact of teaching science using Hawkins' strategy in achieving second-grade students. The experimental approach was adopted. The study sample consisted of (67 female students for the second intermediate grade from one of the Baghdad schools affiliated to the General Directorate of Baghdad   Education, Karkh III, for the first semester of the academic year)/(2021/2022). The school was chosen intentionally. The students were divided into two divisions, one experimental and the number of its members (33 learnt according to the Hawkins strategy, while the other was considered an officer and the number of its members) (34 learnt according to the usual method. Teaching plans were prepared according to the Hawkins strategy and it was confirmed that the two research groups were equal, and the achievement test was developed, and after verifying its validity and stability, it was applied to the study members after the implementation of the experiment to achieve the research goal). The research result showed a statistically significant difference between the mean scores of the research personnel on the post-achievement test, which is attributed to Hawkins' strategy for the benefit of the experimental group. In the light of these results, the research recommended that science teachers use Hawkins' strategy in teaching science.
