Children´s thoughts about gas : A study on children´s descriptions and questions about the density of gases (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att men hjälp av experiment, se hur barn kommunicerar och ställer frågor kring gasers egenskaper. Metoden som använts i studien är kvalitativa intervjuer med produktiva frågor för att kunna rikta barnens uppmärksamhet kring fenomenet. Datainsamlingsmetoden består av ljudinspelningar tillsammans med intervjuprotokoll, där barnens frågor och beskrivningar kring experimentet förts ner. Resultatet visar att barnen har en förståelse kring det naturvetenskapliga ämnet och kring gasers densitet. Även att barnen kunde beskriva varför materialen reagerade som de gjorde i lådan. De orden barnen använde delades in i ordklasserna adjektiv, verb och substantiv, medans frågorna delades in i kategorierna barns frågor kring saker barnen känner igen, frågor kring görandet och frågor kring att utveckla experimentet.  

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is with help of experiments, see how the children communicate and ask questions about gases properties. The method used in the study is qualitative interviews with the help of productive questions to direct the children’s attention around the phenomenon. The data collection method consists of audio recording along with a document where children’s questions and descriptions about the experiment brought down. The result shows that the children have a better understanding of the science topic and gases density. But also that the children were able to describe why the materials reacted like they did in the box. The worlds the children used were divided into parts of speech adjectives, verbs and nouns, while the questions were divided into categories like children’s questions about things they recognize, questions about the making and questions about developing the experiment.
