The purpose of this study was to find out if preschool teachers use physical concepts included in thecurriculum for grade 1-3 (gravity, center of gravity, equilibrium, balance and friction) with the children in the outdoor environment at the preschool, if preschool teachers believe it is concepts that works to use with children in preschool outdoor environment and if the work could be developed regarding these physical concepts. To conduct the study, observations were done of preschool yards and semi-structured interviewswere conducted with preschool teachers who work in preschool right now. The result shows that it requires little resources to work with these concepts outdoors and teachers are positive to use the concepts but they do not use it to the extent they would like for a variety of reasons. In various ways, the preschool teachers also expresses that it is possible for children to absorb the physical concepts at preschool and it would help to later build a foundation in the form of childrens thinking that science is something fun and exciting that belong in their everyday lives.
