The purpose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of the program based on augmented reality technology in developing some scientific concepts (The Vertebrates), and basic science skills observation - classification - thinking - conclusion - prediction - communication" for kindergarten children, and to verify the relationship between the development of basic science skills, and the development of scientific concepts in the kindergarten child. The researchers chose Al-Faisaliah School Kindergarten - 6th of October City to carry out the program to (64) children; they were separated into two groups: an experimental group of (32) children and a control group of (32) children. The researchers used the Scale of scientific concepts, the Scale of basic science skills, and the form for observing the basic science skills of the kindergarten child - prepared by researchers - to reveal the effectiveness of the program. The quasi- experimental design was chosen due to its appropriateness to the topic of the study., The results resulted in a statistically significant difference between the mean scores of the children of the experimental and control groups on the scientific concepts scale in favor of the children of the experimental group. In favor of the children of the experimental group after applying the program; This indicates the effectiveness of the program. the results revealed a direct correlation between the development of basic science skills, and the scientific concepts of the kindergarten child. The research concluded with many recommendations for curriculum developers, program designers, kindergarten stakeholders, and proposals were made for further study.
