Summary/Abstract: In the paper entitled “Narrations about the past in popular-scientific texts for children printed in „Kumpel” magazine” I subject to analysis the information included in the corpus of popular-scientific texts excerpted from ten volumes of the „Kumpel” magazine. The analytical material is constituted by mini-texts that are difficult to define in terms of genre, which in general terms discuss selected facts from the Polish and European history. In the past assimilated on the pages of the magazine, I have distinguished three categories, such as time, man, and technical (technological) thought. These categories rendered the division of the article into the following three parts: 1. perception of time, 2. man and culture, 3. technical thought. In the summary, I have come to the conclusion that the topics and their sequences that are offered to the primary school learner gradually complement and supplement one another in a given text or in other texts, which (like puzzles) piece together as a specific whole — the early germ of cultural code.
