    Activities described within the thesis have been developed in relation to CS Unplugged project. Combining computational components topic has not yet been covered by activities of the project and it also represents its upgrade. Activities are designed for fourth grade elementary school students. We also added tasks appropriate for students in the last triad. Acquired student knowledge was compared with control group of students where activities were not implemented. We have learned that both groups had similar achievements covering knowledge and understanding. The main differences between the groups are reflected where we verified students generalisation ability. Students who attended the activities have achieved better results. Very few students were able to transfer knowledge to a new situation. This can be the result of missing experience or despair before approaching the problem. Similar difficulties are found in other computer sciences disciplines such as programming.
