Which system of elementary school-education should be preferred, whether the functional and logical one (more humane?) or the reproductive one (drill system?) Is it the right way to choose both of these as Tolstoy`s method since it may be smarter option? The elementary school educational system in Serbia is prevalently based upon the reproductive. Is it the reason it faced its dead-end? The objective of this paper is to promote an e-model of a flipped & heuristic and functionally & logical learning with the example of animated content. An animated movie does not require any additional motivation to watch and therefore it is quite receptive as a learning source for the Generation "Z’’ attending school classes in the elementary schools. The presented example of the animated scientific task intends to stimulate functional and logical thinking at pupils and the model is applicable for each and every school subject existing in the syllabus. The results of the conducted research at the sample of the pupils attending fourth grade were expected and support the claim of pupils being unprepared for this method of learning in great percentage due to the reason of the implemented system even though the motivation during the procedure was at very high level. Is it possible that the very reason for the poor results at PISA test can be traced all up to this initial flaw of the educational system incapable of fulfilling the need for early stimulation of the development of the synapses that are directly responsible for the intellectual capabilities of children and therefore for the level of the Gross domestic product of a country?
