This research aims to enhance the learning activities of grade IVB students on economic activities by employing the Project-Based Learning model and the Teaching at the Right Level approach. The study adopts the classroom action research method developed by Kemmis and McTaggart, consisting of two cycles comprising planning, implementation, observation, and reflection. The subjects of the classroom action research are 23 students from grade IVB. The object of this research is the Project-Based Learning (PjBL) model with the Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach concerning economic activities. The research method employed is qualitative. Data collection techniques include observation and documentation. The data analysis technique utilized is qualitative descriptive analysis. Based on the results, the implementation of the Project-Based Learning model with the Teaching at the Right Level approach consistently improves in each cycle. During the learning process implementation in grade IVB, students' average learning activity in the pre-action phase was 41.30%, categorized as low. In cycle I, it increased to 73.43%, categorized as good, and in cycle II, it further improved to 82.68%, categorized as very good.
