    The purpose of my thesis is to study advantages and disadvantages of active learning with a research method, which enables children to detect and become aware of social and physical environment through their own activity. This way of learning enables children to get answers to certain research questions. They get them through information they substantively try to find or through help of their teacher. Children become more responsible within learning process, critical opinion, planning, collaborations, information seeking and information arranging. The knowledge children gain is acquired through their own experiences and recognition, therefore it is more long-term. In a theoretical part I have introduced a theoretical base of learning – I defined active learning, project work and research work as an active learning method in preschool. Empirical part incorporates a closed type of problem research to “What is ‘an accident’?” Children were trying to understand the meaning of ‘an accident’, the types of accidents, how to react and who to call when an accident happens etc. I tested the active learning method with 3 to 5-year-olds in preschool Stopiče where I am currently working as an assistant teacher.
