This study aims to increase the students’ learning concentration through ice breaking. It employs classroom action research method conducted in Islamic Junior High School (MTs) Surya Buana Malang subjecting 86 students of class VIIA, VIIB, and VIIC. To measure the students’ learning concentration, observation sheet is used. The research steps are (1) planning, (2) action, (3) observation, and (4) reflection. The data of the students’ concentration were analyzed by using the formula of frequency distribution. The research result in cycle 1 shows that students’ ability refers to the category of Less Developing (LD) = 17%, Developing (D) = 33%, and Developed as Expected (DE) = 50%. In cycle 2, ice breaking for the students’ concentration manages to reach the desired targets, which are LD = 10%, D = 23%, and DE = 67%. The cycle 1 and cycle 2 results show an increase in the number of students who are in the category of DE by 17%. Finally, it concludes that ice breaking can increase the students’ learning concentration.
