    Abstract

    Interdisciplinary teaching presents a key modern direction towards educational development. Because we are expecting more and more lateral thinking and skills from students, it's important that the teachers guide them to interdisciplinarity. In the dissertation I warn about the importance of interdisciplinarity and how can we do that with the help of conceptual maps. In this dissertation, we present how much of the chosen contents of home economics and chemistry are connected to each other. To figure out the connections of concepts in particular conceptual areas we (with the help of approved textbooks for home economics and chemistry for elementary school) prepared these conceptual maps. We made them in a software called CmapTools. We marked the conceptual maps with colour, based on how the concepts complete and overlap each other. By using descriptive statistics we present the shares of complementing and overlapping of individual concepts. We found that the selected content from home economics and chemistry items is intertwined. Prepared conceptual maps can thus help teachers for easier interdisciplinary teaching during lessons.
