Considering the tendencies in the contemporary education and the requirement to respect the holistic approach in the pedagogical work with children, one of the requirements established in front of the teacher refers to the possibilities to establish integration - correlation relationships between the educational contents from different teaching subjects in primary education. In this regard, we take the physical and health education curriculum as a starting point considering its overall aim - the influence toward development of complete personality as well as the connection between the motor development and other segments of development in children. Based on this, the aim of this paper is to establish integration-correlated connections between the curricula subject physical and health education, and other subjects, as the Macedonian language and literature, Mathematics, Arts, Music education, Science and Society, learned in third grade in primary nine year compulsory education. The theoretic analyses of the curricula for third grade was realized. The analyses included comparison on following items: the representation of the subject, goals and objectives, thematic units, the specific content based on these possibilities and examples for correlation and integrative approach. The general conclusion is that many correlations and integrative relations could be established between the PE contents and the contents from other teaching subjects. This from one side will produce emphasized mental, and on the other side, physical load. The forms of realization of these relations are different and depends mainly on the teachers’ creativity and preparedness to work on this goal.
