The article examines the issue of the development of a research attitude to the surrounding world in younger students. The authors state that there is a contradiction between the need for developing methods of organizing research activities among primary schoolchildren and investigation of such methods. The article offers a model of forming a research attitude to the surrounding world among younger schoolchildren during extracurricular activities The model includes the following blocks: targeting; structural and content-related; operational and activity-related; efficiency evaluating. The model describes a step by step process projected by the teacher and members of the scientific community. It starts with stimulating children's interest in the research of specific social and natural objects of the city park; next comes their mastery of the researcher social roles and, finally, children become aware that a research attitude in organizing meaningful activities helps maintain the status of the city park for the cultural future of the next generations and the advance of domestic science. Addressing the issue of forming a research attitude towards the surrounding world in younger schoolchildren made it possible to work out the questions of developing education and upbringing in primary school from the perspective of cultural norms, as a part of the internal individualization of education, and with regard to the schoolchildren’s acquisition of productive reflection on research strategies.
