The research instrument was in the form of observation sheets and tests which were analyzed using a comparative descriptive approach. The results of the study indicate that social studies learning by Group Investigation model can improve students' critical thinking skills, with the following implications; (1) The condition of critical thinking skills of pre-cycle students by 40% are in the less condition, and 35% are in the sufficient category; (2) In the first cycle, the students' critical thinking skills below the minimum standard have been reduced to 25%; (3) Then, only 15% of students have critical thinking skills below the minimum standard.
