Some features of the Life Safety Basics school course, which can be used for the effective implementation of school students' research activities analyzed. To assess the teachers' attitude to the students' research activities, a questionnaire was developed. The study revealed that the main learning effects of students' research activities for the students include development: skills to work with scholarly publications and information, manage self-education process; research skills; critical and analytical thinking. A teacher as a students' research activities supervisor increases the level of students' professionalism, meets the educational standard requirements, gets the opportunity to realize the potential of each student and increase the level of their subject knowledge. Herewith, methodological problems of designing and managing students' research activities in the teaching practice are identified: students' research activities are not integrated into the everyday learning process; research methods in the classroom, as those that formed primary research skills, are used in fragments. The authors conclude that there is a contradiction between the formal teacher's understanding of students' research activities effectiveness for the meta-subject, personal and social competencies development and the non-system use. Attention is drawn to the lack of future teachers training issue development to implement research methods in teaching as a necessary professional activity element. Thus, there is a need to improve future teachers' professional training, which would include formation of the preparedness for the design and management of students' research activities in the classroom and in extracurricular activities for the Life Safety Basics school course.
