This research was conducted for students' cognitive abilities through the selection of appropriate learning and media models in science learning in elementary schools. Previously it was known that the data obtained by researchers was in the process of learning science. Teachers tended to use the lecture learning model. The teacher does not use the right learning model, and the students' cognitive abilities are low. Pre-cycle data is the value of students who achieved an average of 64%, the lowest score is 45, the highest score is 75, which is completed by 6 students, which is not completed by 14 students. This study can be considered successful if the activities of teachers and students during learning using the Inquiry and media learning model of this study at the end of the cycle there are at least ≥ 75% if each student is said to complete learning (individual completeness) and a class is said to be complete learning (classical completeness) if there are ≥ 75% in the class, they have experienced an increase in cognitive abilities, according to the KKM standard (Minimum Completion Criteria) of 70%. The results of this study indicate changes in learning activities, where 20 students were able to reach even more than the specified KKM of 70%. Thus the inquiry learning model and microsoft power point based media provide an increase in students' cognitive abilities in the sensory material and how to maintain it in the first cycle with a KKM completeness level of 67% of students who complete 12 people and 8 people who have not finished. From the first cycle data, then the researcher proceeded to cycle II. From the data obtained in the second cycle experienced a significant increase because the achievement of completeness exceeded KKM, which is 75% of the KKM that has been determined 70%. Thus researchers can ensure that the use of inquiry learning models and Microsoft power point based media is appropriate because it can improve students' cognitive abilities in sensory material and how to maintain fourth grade students in Matungkas Inpres Elementary School, North Minahasa Regency.
