Özet

The purpose of this study is to indicate primary school students' views on changes in the socioeconomic and cultural structures of population, which stem from touristic activities. The effects of variables on these views will be tested in the study. 676 primary school students of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade in Safranbolu, Karabuk participated in the study. Data were collected by 5-point Likert type questionnaire developed by Ozupekce (2008). Results mirrored that students' views on touristic activities were generally positive. It was also seen that students' views differed significantly according to the variables such as school's geographic position, students' grades, and families' economic status.
