Abstract: This study investigated the effectiveness of innovative spider/hierarchical collaborative concept map approach over spider/hierarchical individual concept map science learning among the elementary school students. Sixty-four seventh-grade students from an Indian elementary school participated in the study. It was an immediate and delayed test experimental design. To identify the effectiveness and differences between spider and hierarchical map approach, concerning collaborative and individual modes of learning; one-way ANOVA and Tukey-Kramer multiple comparisons test were used. The result suggested that both collaborative spider and hierarchical concept map were significantly better than individual learning in science concept and collaborative spider map activity was significantly better than hierarchical map.
