This study aimed to investigate The effectiveness of teaching using the interactive whiteboard in learning science and the development of the cognitive thinking skills among female students of 10th grade in basic schools. The study sample consisted of 62 female students, divided into two groups, experimental group consisted of 29 girls studied the unit "Energy Flow in Technological System" using the interactive whiteboard. The control group consisted of 33 girls studied the same unit using the traditional whiteboard. To achieve the objectives of the study, two tests were prepared, achievement test and a test to measure the cognitive thinking skills. The validity of each test was verified through several judges. The reliability of the achievement test was verified by test – retest method and Pearson correlation coefficient was used which gave the value of 0.85 and the reliability of cognitive thinking skills' test was calculated using alpha Cronbach's which gave the value of 0.71. The results show that there was a statistically significant difference between the mean scores of the students' achievement in the post-test at the significance level (α = 0.05) in favor of the experimental group. In addition the results showed statistically significant difference between the mean scores of students in the cognitive thinking skills post-test at the significance level (α = 0.05) in favor of the experimental group. In the light of these findings, number of recommendations and suggestions were proposed.
