The study aimed to identify the effect of the interactive drills using the dry laboratory on the acquisition of scientific concepts and laboratory skills in science among the ninth-grade female students in Palestine in light of their thinking styles. The study used quizzes of experimental method. The sample consisted of 68 female students distributed on two groups: an experimental group (n = 34 students) and a control group (n = 34 students). In order to achieve the objectives of the study, test of laboratory skills and thinking styles tests were used. The results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the means of the experimental group that was studied using the interactive method of the dry laboratory and the control group that studied using the traditional method via laboratory skills tests in favor of the experimental group. The results also revealed that there was an interaction between the method of teaching (the interactive drills using dry laboratory and the traditional method) and thinking styles on the acquisition of laboratory skills. In light of these results, several recommendations were suggested.
