Main Article Content
This research examines geographic inquiry activities in project-based learning to improve students' spatial thinking skill. The differentiation included as a moderator variable is the students’ learning style. The subject of this research is 64 Students who learn topographic mapping in Geological Mining Vocational Program. The achieved data is analyzed by using two lines ANOVA with the 2x3 factorial through SPSS 24 program. The result shows that: 1) there is significant difference between the learning models to spatial thinking skill, with the sig value of 0.003; 2) there is significant difference between the learning styles to spatial thinking skill, with the sig value of 0.004; and 3) there is significant interaction between the learning model as well as learning style and spatial thinking skill, with sig value 0.000. Geographical inquiry activities in project-based learning is most suitable used by the students with kinesthetic learning style.
