Creativity is one of the important skills for learners that helps improve imagination and endeavor with real-life situations. However, Thai education does not completely promote that skill in the present. This research aims to study the guidelines for using Mathematical Modelling that promote Mathematical Creative Thinking and the effects of learning activities on student’s Mathematical Creative Thinking in geometric analysis. This research was conducted in terms of the classroom action research. Participants were 34 students in tenth grade of a school in Phitsanulok. The research instruments consisted of the lesson plans, worksheets, behavior observation form and Mathematical Creative Thinking test. The data were analyzed by using content analysis. The research found that the learning activities based on mathematical models that promote Mathematical Creative Thinking should emphasize choosing situations, which there are multiple solutions and related with the student’s daily life, observe and consider of appropriate assistance when students work around obstacles occur, providing a chance for brainstorming and present to the whole class in order to get feedback to modify the model. Moreover, the student had improved Mathematical Creative Thinking when learning through mathematical models categorized based on their performance in descending order of components in creativity as follows; fluency, flexibility, elaboration, curiosity, originality and imagination.
