Integration of biology in preschool (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att få kunskap om hur pedagogers arbetssätt inom biologi skiljer sig åt beroende på barngruppens ålder, samt vilken inställning pedagoger generellt sett har till ämnet. Undersökningsmetoden som är använt i undersökningen är enkäter, då syftet var att göra en kvantitativ studie för att kunna generalisera mitt resultat.

Resultatet visar på att pedagogerna har en positiv inställning till biologi i verksamheten och ser det som spännande, rolig och intressant. Man kan också se att över hälften av respondenterna tycker sig ha grundläggande kunskaper i ämnet biologi men en stor del saknar kunskapen de vill ha och önskar vidareutbildning i ämnet. Pedagogerna ansåg också att det tydligt står i förskolans läroplan hur man kan integrera biologi och andra naturvetenskapliga ämnen i verksamheten. Resultatet visar också på att skillnaden på arbetssättet i biologi skiljer sig åt beroende på barngruppens ålder, speciellt när det kommer till begreppsanvändning tillsammans i barngruppen. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to find out if the work methods differs in work with younger compared to older children. And to see which attitude pre-schoolteachers have to biology in pre-school. The method that is used is surveys, because the purpose was to do a quantitative study to be able to generalize the results.

The results shows that the pre-schoolteachers have a positive attitude to biology in pre-school, and they see the subject as exciting, fun and interesting. The results also shows that more than half of the respondents seems to have basic knowledge in biology, but a large part want more knowledge of the subject and wishes to get further education in biology. The pre-schoolteachers also considered that the curriculum for preschool clearly explains how to integrate biology and other science subjects to the preschool program. The result also shows that the work method differs depended on the children’s ages, especially when it comes to the use of biological concepts
