This research reviews the effects of education and schooling activities that are conducted with respect to different learning styles on the success of teaching abstract and tangible concepts of 6th Grade Social Studies, and researches whether the demographic variables (age, gender) of the students had any effect on this success levels. To do so, 2 different groups from a school in the Umraniye District of Istanbul were addressed and these groups were separated as experimental and control groups. In this research; "learning styles measures" and "abstract/tangible concepts success test" was used and the obtained data was analyzed and interpreted by using the SPSS 15.0 Package Software. In the experimental group, it was observed that the education and schooling activities done within the framework of learning styles program were effective on the abstract and tangible concepts that are found in the 6th Grade Social Studies course books, and that the learning environments and processes that were designed with respect to individual differences were effective on the learning success for abstract/tangible concepts. Furthermore, it was observed that in the control group in which the regular education-schooling program was conducted and the learning styles program was not applied, there had been no differentiation in the learning levels for abstract/tangible concepts. Also, according to the obtained findings; it was determined that the age and gender variables of the students had no effect on this learning success. (Contains 13 tables.)
