 Teaching objectives of the program for the school subject Man and Nature also intend emotional education and psycho-motor development of pupils.

Therefore, objectives of this school subject as official and pedagogical guidance except natural knowledge, they aim pupils’ conscientious and awareness to be active in conservation of the environment from human destruction and demotion. Logically the textbooks Man and Nature have to implement these curriculum objectives through putting in order the teaching material in the teaching lessons and practical teaching assignment.

The assignment of the school subject contributes in the pupil’s active development and their human and environmental education. Also the evidence, experiments and other activities taking place within and outside the classroom are a good help to the formation of psycho-motor development of children at this age. The object of the research and analysis of this paper is therefore verification of the level of harmonization of the teaching contents of textbooks Man and Nature with established objectives of this school subject on the affective of psycho-motor areas. We want through analysis to find out how much have the authors of these textbooks met the objectives defined by curriculum in putting in order of the teaching matter. We based our research study on comparative analysis of teaching objectives in the affective psycho-motor fields in programs of textbooks Man and Nature for the three grades where this subject is taught.

Also in order of research we surveyed teachers and pupils of this subject as well as parents of these pupils. The findings of this research are interesting and of current scientific importance. In this paper we are going to present them through percentages, charts and different graphs.

Keywords: Textbooks, teaching objectives, affective fields, psycho-motor field.


Division of the personality formation on particular development, dimensions and areas in science and various debates is done for reasons of research analysis. Affective field and psycho-motor are important dimensions of general and harmonic pupils’ development. Educational work and pedagogical literature in schools have always paid attention to the cognitive domain leaving psycho-motor affective development of pupils overshadowed. In fact, all the three dimensions or areas of formation and education are equally important and closely related among themselves. If in textbooks and in our pedagogical practice ignore any of the following three dimensions of pupil’s development, we have directly created a void in the harmonic formation and progressive development of generations. This reality raises the question: How much is worth and useful to the society a wise person without healthy emotional? What is a typical day of this “intellectual”? In human history are known cases of wise people who had power and strength but not the healthy or moral human formation. We consider that neither psycho-motor development aspect is not given deserved importance and place in scientific debates and treatments or in pedagogical school practice of our families. In this research we analyze the harmonization of educational contents in textbooks Man and Nature and defined objectives set by psycho-motor affective areas.In Kosovo, the school subject Man and Nature is taught  in grades 3, 4 and 5 of primary school. We here aim through comparative analysis to see how teaching contents of the textbooks have met the objectives implemented and psycho-motor affective of program as an official and pedagogical instructor to write and realize all the practice in our schools. It is known that the teaching of this subject has units of different topics and interesting lessons that can form opinions and develop positive attitudes to the natural environment and also develop skills and psycho-motor habits through researching and doing simple experiments outdoors or in the class. The findings of our analysis.
