In our country, a new fifth grade social studies curriculum (SSC) was implemented in the academic year of 2017-2018. This study aimed to evaluate the learning outcome of the fifth grade social studies curriculum (LOSSC), which started to be implemented in 2017-2018 academic year, according to the revised Bloom taxonomy dimensions. Bloom taxonomy was renewed in 2001. The renewed Bloom taxonomy has six cognitive dimensions. In the cognitive process dimensions of the renewed Bloom Taxonomy; three levels of thinking (Creation, Evaluation and Analysis) and three lower-order thinking (Remembering, Understanding and Applying) dimensions. The information dimension of the revised Bloom taxonomy is composed of four dimensions (Factual, Conceptual, Operational and Metacognitive). This work has been conducted as a qualitative research. The data were collected using a document analysis technique suitable for qualitative research. The theoretical universe of the research is composed of the dimensions of the renewed Bloom taxonomy and the LOSSC applied in the fifth grade in the academic year of 2017-2018. As the data collection tool of the research, the fifth grade social studies course published by the Ministry of National Education has created the learning outcomes determined in the curriculum and the dimensions of the renewed Bloom taxonomy. Researchers first classified the fifth grade LOSSC by classifying it according to the revised Bloom taxonomy dimensions. The views of researchers who received two social studies and two field experts who applied for two curricula were consulted to examine the extent of the gains classified by the researchers and the renewed Bloom taxonomy dimensions to ensure the validity and reliability of the study. In line with the information and suggestions obtained from the field experts, necessary classifications and arrangements have been made regarding the dimensions of the LOSSC renewed Bloom taxonomy. Qualitative data collected within the scope of this study were analyzed according to "descriptive analysis" method. According to findings; there are seven learning areas in the fifth grade social studies course and a total of 33 learning outcomes. While 25 of the 33 learning outcomes are in the dimension of factual knowledge, 8 of them are in the dimension of conceptual knowledge. In the operational and metacognitive knowledge dimension, there is no learning outcome. As a result, when the fifth grade LOSSC is evaluated according to the dimensions of the renewed Bloom taxonomy, a total of 33 learning outcomes, nine learning outcomes have higher thinking dimensions and 24 learning outcomes have lower thinking dimensions.
