Two trips have encouraged to prepare this methodological article, having provided not only new knowledge but also contradictory ideas about the environments used for education. One trip was to British educational training and technology exhibition Bett-2019, the other – to Reggio Emilia, where everyone was introduced to the unique Loris Malaguzzi education method. Holding an opinion “unique is what is simple”, it was decided to use proper objects for education right here, in the kindergarten / primary school yard and to generate the ideas how to use them for education. The research object is a pine-tree and a fir-tree as a teaching/learning device in the kindergarten and in the primary school: what, how and why. The aims: 1) to look through the preschool age children achievement description (2014) and a standardised world cognition programme (2015) in order one could tell, what achievements the children could develop if they explored a pine-tree and a fir-tree, growing in the kindergarten / primary school yard; 2) to provide childhood teachers with the knowledge about the mentioned trees and to share the ideas, how one could use a pine tree and a fir tree for children education in childhood, what activities, what spheres or school subjects to integrate. In the article, methodological advice is given illustrated with lots of pictures.
