Summary/Abstract: Teaching of geography in elementary schools in Serbia in the XIX century is examined in the paper from the historical, pedagogical and methodological-didactic aspects. We believe that the study of this issue will contribute to the enrichment of historical and pedagogical-didactic knowledge of the teaching of geography as a forerunner of modern geography teaching in elementary school, as well as the clearing up of under-known facts from the history of the development of geography teaching in elementary school, but also the school and education in Serbia. The central issues of the paper are considered through a descriptive study of material from the primary and secondary sources and the theoretical analysis of the teaching problem: the representation of the subject of geography in the curricula, the goals and objectives of the subject, the organization of classes, tools, methods, textbooks, reports of the superintendent on the state of the geography teaching in elementary schools. Knowledge we obtained, we have tried to perceive in the context of the meanings they have for understanding and creating the modern conceptions of geography teaching in elementary school.
