The application of the learning model is still not optimal because learning is carried out only by using the lecture method and giving assignments and questions and answers. Thus resulting in not maximal effort of teachers to increase student motivation. Teachers in the Akidah Akhlak study field have not directed students to student-centered learning (student oriented) so that indicators in increasing student learning motivation are hampered by learning activities that do not fully develop student creativity in learning, especially in forming students' abilities in critical thinking. The method used by researchers is Classroom Action Research which uses a cyclical reflection system consisting of 3 (three) cycles to determine the increase in students' learning motivation. The results of this study are the application of the Snowball Throwing Learning Model in increasing student motivation in the field of Aqidah Akhlak studies for Class VIII MTs students. Private Al-Washliyah Pangkalan Brandan has been well implemented and there has been an increase since the beginning of the pre-cycle, namely the number of students who received an average completeness score of 53.78 students who received a complete score in the Akidah Akhlak study field, in Cycle I it increased to 67, 75 students who completed the Aqidah Akhlak learning activity on learning motivation material.
