This study was conducted in Doos Sur Elementary School, Hindang, Leyte, Philippines within the school year 2017-2018 to assess the effectiveness of Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) on academic performance in science among grade VI students. It utilized the pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design. The SIM used as a treatment of the study covered one of the least mastered skills in the Science VI, that is, describing the appearance and uses of homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures. The study employed 20 students for control group and 20 students for experimental group enrolled in Science VI during the first quarter. Control group was taught with conventional teaching method and the experimental group was taught with SIM. Through hypothesis testing, this study determined the significant effect of SIM to students’ academic performance. Results of the study showed that the use of SIM is effective in terms of improving students’ performance particularly on the topic pertaining to the least mastered skills in Science VI. This implies that SIM can be utilized as instructional materials during learning process as effective teaching tool.
