The interest of students is very important to be grown in learning so that they are able to follow the learning process with a pleasant and well-received taste. Good interest in learning is expected to increase student learning achievement. This research was conducted with the aim of increasing interest and achievement in learning science in class V students for the 2022/2023 school year by applying the Problem Based Learning learning model assisted by concrete media. The Problem Based Learning model is a model that presents real problems that exist in the surrounding environment. The application of the Problem Based Learning model assisted by concrete media makes it easier for students to know, understand, and apply the field being studied. The method used is collaborative classroom action research. Data collection is done by observation, interviews and documentation. Data analysis techniques used are qualitative and quantitative. The results of this study are that the application of the Problem Based Learning model assisted by concrete media can increase interest and achievement in learning science for fifth grade elementary school students. This can be seen from the increase in each cycle. The percentage of students' learning interest in cycle I was 77% and cycle II was 83%. Meanwhile, the percentage of student achievement in cycle I was 56% and cycle II was 78%.
