The effectiveness of education process from teachers´ perspective, as well as application of teaching strategies for enhancing Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS), is becoming an increasingly frequent subject of discussion across various fields. Bloom's taxonomy is known as the classification of educational goals. This has become the groundwork for many educators worldwide, who are using it to design activities for developing HOTS. This preliminary casestudy analyses knowledge of traffic and road safety within pupils, as well as their level of thinking skills in this field with emphasis on analytical skills and risk assessment in traffic. A didactic test was assembled to examine the level of thinking of 4th grade primary school pupils. The results showed that pupils´ level of knowledge in the field is age-adequate; however, in application of HOTS, as well as risk assessment, there is room for improvement.


Keywords –road safety, educational, pupils, primary school, HOTS, LOTS.
