The best known method of integrating knowledge from different subjects is by doing cross-curricula projects. Projects carried out in the classroom involve planning, designing, realisation, presentation and evaluation of the task, which can create many links between subjects. Starting cross-curricula work can be demanding and difficult for teachers and pupils, so our proposal is to start by doing simple projects within informatics lessons. The first projects can concern one subject, and the emphasis is put on the technical aspect of using ICT tools at every stage of realisation. The next projects are done in teams of pupils, and include also elements of negotiation and dividing the work in the group. The themes of the projects are universal and are concerned with organising some aspects of school life, so are useful in different conditions. We teach the methodology of doing projects, and show the possibilities presented by using ICT.
