The article submits the results of research that pursued to establish a number of ecological tasks on physics in the textbooks of natural science education and to collate the preconditions of ecological education of school tasks on physics in the integrated natural science textbooks and non-integrated textbooks on physics of different countries. To fulfil the research, the following methods such as the analysis of literature, the quantitative analysis of the content of textbooks, the statistical analysis of empirical data have been applied.
When examining integrated and non-integrated textbooks of different countries, it has been established that the average of ecological tasks varies from 7% in the non-integrated textbooks and up to 12% in the integrated ones. Comparing integrated and non-integrated textbooks of the same class the deviation of comparative rates of ecological tasks varies from statistically irrelevant to statistically absolute. The cases of statistically relevant deviation are fractionally prevailing. The examined non-integrated textbooks on physics and integrated natural science textbooks, including the Lithuanian ones, do not basically differentiate evaluating the element of ecological tasks that comprise students’ preconditions of ecological education.
