This research is motivated by the low collaboration skilss of class III students. In the discussion activities which were divided into 4 groups, there was only 1 group which went well by applying the division of tasks. While for the other 3 groups it has not gone well. There were 2 groups where only one student worked on and conveyed the answer when presenting in front of the class while the other students played alone and 1 other group was still working on it until it exceeded the allotted time limit. The purpose of this study was to improve the collaboration skills of third grade students in thematic learning through the Problem Based Learning model in elementary schools. The type of research used in this study was Collaborative Classroom Action Research (PTKK) with the Kemmis and Mc Taggart model in two cycles. Data collection is done by observation and documentation. The data analysis technique used is qualitative and quantitative. The results of this study indicate that the Problem Based Learning model can improve the collaboration skills of third grade students in thematic learning. This can be shown from the percentage of students' collaboration skills which have increased from cycle I to cycle II.
