The individual topics are written as a project including their methodical and practical part. They are divided into the chapters: Wood, Metals and Plastics, Man, Technology and Electricity, Man and Work, Family and Housekeeping. Each topic starts with a synoptic table containing the following information: the topic title, the recommended year, the project goals and the development of competences and inter-subject relations. The topics are managed in order to make it easier for teachers to prepare their lessons and especially the work during lessons. The teacher using these materials will gain time which he can dedicate to work individually with pupils. The ideas for practical activities for pupils form a part of the methodical work. Each of the processed topics includes a variety of different alternatives to the practical activities and other attractive activities, so that these can be put in practise at any school regardless of its material or technical equipment.

You can find chosen topics from the methodical manual on the section News.
