The present study was aimed at investigating the use of Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Lab to improve creative thinking skills of pre-service physics teachers. To this end, this study employed a quasiexperimental design. The research subjects were 60 students enrolled in the Physics Education Program of UIN Sunan Gunung Djati Bandung. 30 of them were assigned to the experimental group who used the HOT Lab, and the other 30 to the control group who used verification lab. The results revealed that students’ creative thinking skills improved with a high average N-gain as a result of using HOT Lab that consists of various activities that can enhance creative thinking skills. Thus, it can be concluded that the use of HOT- Lab can improve students’ creative thinking skills better than the use of verification lab. It is recommended that HOT Lab be used in other educational levels.
