Abstract: Spasial Based Learning Model has provided an alternative to Geography learning. SBL model can teach and improve critical thinking skill. This research was aimed to increase the ability to think critically through SBL model. The study design used a quasi-experiment with the design of pretest-posttest, nonequivalent control group design. The participants are students of Senior High School XI S.1 and XI S.2 of SMA Negri 1 Atambua. The results of the independent sample t-test supported by SPSS 16.00 for windows show that the value of Sig. (2-tailed) of 0,000 smaller than 0.05. Based on the results of the analysis it was concluded that there was a significant effect of the SBL model on students' critical thinking abilities. It means that an increase in critical thinking skill is a consequence of learning through the SBL model.
