The aim of this study was to determine what kind of learning style the Geographical Education acquisitionss in the social studies course curriculum allow students to learn. As a sample, 6. and 7. classroom social studies course curriculum includes achievements. The learning style provides information about how an individual learns, but also shows at what taxonomical level an individual's learning develops. When we look at learning styles, visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles appear. Visual learning involves using things that include demonstrations, movies, pictures, diagrams, that is, what is seen and observed. People with this learning style learn best when information is presented visually and in writing. Auditory learning; auditory learners learn by listening and repeating self-knowledge. These individuals learn best when information is presented verbally. People with kinesthetic learning styles include physical experience, that is, experiences obtained through touch, feeling, holding, making, and practicing. In other words, they learn well when they use and experiment with materials in or outside the classroom environment. When the acquisitionss in the social studies course curriculum are examined, the following results appear. There are 34 acquisition expressions in the curriculum of the 6. classroom Social Studies course. And 58% of these acquisitionss are addressed to auditory learning style. The acquisitions of 32% were focused on visual learning style. The remaining 10% section was included as acquisitionss in accordance with the kinesthetic learning style. In the curriculum of the 7. class Social Studies course, there are 31 achievements. 37% of these acquisitionss are auditory, 45% visual, and the remaining 18% call for kinesthetic learning style. The contribution of the social studies course to the meaning of a person's life is undeniably great. From this point of view, strengthening this course in life with kinesthetic learning activities will allow children to learn while having fun.
