Biology in preschool : An examination of preschool teachers’ attitude to biology in comparison with the use of the topic in preschool. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I detta arbete undersöks vad pedagogerna i förskolan har för kunskap och intresse gällande biologi, samt hur de arbetar med ämnet i verksamheten. För att få svar på dessa frågeställningar i studien har metoden enkäter använts, där sammanlagt 88 pedagoger deltog i undersökningen. De fick frågor om sin egen inställning till biologi och hur de arbetar med ämnet. Resultatet visade att ungefär hälften av respondenterna uppgav att de inte arbetade med alla områden inom biologi den pågående terminen, fokuset var främst på djur och natur. Det var viktigt för respondenterna att utgå från barnens intresse, samtidigt som det fanns ett fokus på vad de själva var intresserade av och hade kunskap kring. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate the preschool teachers knowledge and interest in biology and how they teach the subject. To answer my questions in this study, I used the survey questionnaire. A total of 88 preschool teachers responded to the survey. They answered questions about their own views regarding biology and how they teach the topic. Results showed that approximately half of the participants mentioned that they did not teach, in equal terms, all areas of biology, the focus was primarily on the areas of animals and nature. It was important for the teachers to consider the children’s interest, and they focus on what they themselves were interested in and had knowledge about.
