This research was carried out with the aim of increasing the activity and learning outcomes of students in Thematic Learning by using modelsProblem Based Learning (PBL) in class III Elementary School. This research is a type of Collaborative Classroom Action Research (PTKK). The subjects were grade III elementary school students, totaling 27 students. PTK design uses the Kemmis and Taggart models which include planning, action, observation, and reflection. Data collection techniques using observation, tests, and documentation. Data analysis used quantitative and qualitative descriptive statistics. The results showed an increase in the percentage of student activity. This can be seen from the results of student observations of the pre-action activities and each cycle, namely in the pre-action of 46.66%, in the first cycle of 50.62%, while in the second cycle of 83.12%. This was accompanied by an increase in the percentage of completeness of students' thematic learning outcomes from pre-action of 48.14%, increasing in cycle I to 77.77%, while in cycle II it increased to 81.48%. It can be concluded that the use of the modelProblem Based Learning (PBL) can increase student activity and learning outcomes in thematic learning.
