The objective of this study was to explore the impact of utilizing the learning contracts strategy in teaching science to develop the self-direction skills of sixth-grade primary students. The study relied on the quasi-experimental approach to answer the research objectives. The study population was represented by sixth-grade students in Usayd bin Al Hudayr Primary School (boys) and Al Tahfidz Fourth Primary School.  There were (120) male and female students in the study sample, and they were split into two groups for each category. The first group, which included 30 male and 30 female students, was an experimental group. The second group, which included 30 male and 30 female students, was a control group. A pre- and post-test measuring the self-direction abilities of the two groups was utilized as the study's instrument. According to the study's findings, there were variations between the two groups of students (male and female) on the post-test of the self-direction scale, favoring the experimental group. The findings also indicated that there were variations in the experimental group students' average scores on the self-direction ability scale in the post-test, with males doing better on average.
