The paper aims to analyze the impact of interdisciplinary integration on the development of critical thinking. Students today need to master the skills to solve difficult problems, critically examine circumstances, raise alternative opinions, and make prudent decisions to meet the challenges of today and the future. Teaching realized through interdisciplinary integration can make possible the demands that time places on students. To carry out the work, contemporary didactic literature related to interdisciplinary integration and the development of critical thinking was reviewed. The paper also contains a concrete field study. The population of this study were primary school students in Albania, parents and teachers. The champions of the study were two fourth graders in the school “Jakov Xoxa”, Fier. The study was conducted while working on topics that rely on interdisciplinary integration. Observations conducted directly in the classroom, questionnaires with students, parents and teachers have provided significant results regarding the impact that interdisciplinary integration has on the development of critical and creative thinking during reading and writing. Interdisciplinary integration in all its dimensions helps and is part of the development of critical thinking by making students more motivated and realizing both the objectives of the school and the demands that time poses to students today.
