Cognitive development of the learners is the prime task of each and every stage of our school education and its importance especially in elementary state is quite worth mentioning. Present study investigated the effectiveness of a new and innovative strategy (i.e., MAI (multi-dimensional activity based integrated approach)) for the development of the cognitive abilities in social studies of sixth grade students. "Non randomized/un-equated two group pre-test and post-test experimental design" was followed for this study. Fifty two students from Class-VI of D.M. (demonstration multi-purpose) school, Bhubaneswar City, constituted the members of control group where as 60 students from Class-VI of K.V. (Kendriya Vidyalaya) No-1, Bhubaneswar City, constituted the members of experimental group. The experimental group was taught through MAI and the control group was taught through TMT (traditional method of teaching). The results indicated that MAI is a positive and meaningful strategy for achieving the development of cognitive abilities in social studies of the learners at the elementary stage of our school education, and educational implications were drawn to use and apply MAI in varied teaching learning situations for securing maximum benefits from it.
