    Natural science is one of the subjects where nature or natural environment can often be used directly for teaching. Joseph Cornell, who introduced Flow Learning, also emphasises this fact. The main focus of my thesis was how Joseph Cornell’s Flow Learning could be used in our primary schools. I selected some learning objectives out of natural science and technology curriculum which could be achieved with the Flow Learning system using Cornell’s activities. I tested my thesis in practice with a group of scouts from 3rd to 5th grade. In the theoretical part, a few theories and opinions on classes in nature and the positive effect of nature and natural environment on children is presented. Joseph Cornell, his work and his Flow Learning system is also presented. In the empirical part, I selected certain learning objectives out of natural science and technology curriculum and examples of learning units with Joseph Cornell’s Flow Learning. In my practical test, I finally discovered that after the Flow Learning activities had been performed, the attitude of children towards environment as well as their behaviour had changed. Practical value of my thesis lies in establishing some connections between Joseph Cornell’s Flow Learning and certain learning objectives. In practical use, I ascertained that its use had a positive effect on children and their behaviour.
