The assessment instrument used for environmental attitude is Likert scale, and essay test is used for assessing the critical thinking skill. The data analysis in this study used normality test, homogeneity test, and independent sample t-test. The results of the study indicate that (1) learning activity using PBL model affects the students’ critical thinking, because through PBL learning, students are trained to think critically to solve real problems in groups. 2) The learning activity using PBL model affects the students’ environmental attitude, because the problem solving process in PBL learning encourages students to care about their environment.
