Students of Teacher Ttaining for Islamic elementary school State Islamic University of Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi are the subjects or samples studied in this study. The application of the project based learning method is done by making products from science learning materials. The results of student work in the form of menu presentations and reports. Product presentations by students are reviewed and used as a measure of students' creative thinking level in creating balanced menus. The instrument used is a product observation sheet. The data is analyzed based on the creative thinking scale which is used as a value in the creative design process of a project.
