The sample was divided into two groups: the experimental included (27) students and the control which included (26) students. The researcher used two tools to achieve the goals of the study: the achievement test and the test of historical thinking skills. The researcher verified the validity of these tools by presenting them to a group of arbitrators. The stability of tools were varied through the cronbach Alva laboratory, where it reached (0.75) for the achievement test, and (0.71) for the test of historical thinking skills., The study found that there are statistically significant differences at the level of significance (0.05 ≥α) between the mean female students ’grades in the achievement test and the post-historical thinking skills test for the benefit of the experimental group. This finding confirms the effectiveness of the negotiating approach in obtaining the subject of social studies and the development of historical thinking skills among students of the class Basic seventh.
