The purpose of the research is to improve student’s critical thinking on the concept of maintaining the environment in Elementary School by using the learning cycle model. The research approach is used qualitative research, and the research method is used action research class (PTK) by using Kemmis and Mc. Taggart design. The participants were all students class III SDN Parakanmuncang 1, academic year 2016-2017. The results showed an increasing in learning outcomes that were shared in various aspects: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor aspects.
