Abstract

The article presents the results of a study devoted to the problem of environmental education of primary school students. The aim of the experimental work was to develop and test the effectiveness of the program of formation of environmental culture of younger students in extracurricular activities. The implementation of the program contributed to the development of environmental concepts, environmental awareness and feelings of students. The program, designed for one academic year, included games of environmental orientation, hiking in nature, planting flowers, trees and shrubs on the territory of the school site, competitions of crafts made of natural material, an exhibition of works and photographs, etc. Purposeful extracurricular work allowed creating conditions for direct contact of children with nature. The study showed that a specially designed program based on the principles of appropriateness, continuity, diversity of the used means, methods and forms of work, integration with other areas of academic and extra-curricular activities, is an effective means of contributing to the development of ecological culture of junior pupils of the school.
