”A plant can’t be alive, it doesn’t have any legs” : An interview study regarding 6-year old’s knowledge about plants (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to illustrate what knowledge 6-year old’s in preschool have about plants. In all, ten children from two different preschools participated in the study. Qualitative interviews were used to get as much information as possible considering that 6-year old children have not developed their ability to read or write properly yet. It is easier for children to reason verbally than respond to a survey. The interviews with showing 20 images of regular Swedish plant species. The children were asked follow-up questions from what they told me about the plants on the images. The results showed that the children in the study knew very little about plant species, the most well-known plant was buttercup. The children knew more about plants living conditions and functions than species. The results also showed that some of the children in the study expressed a higher interest for interactive digital games than learning about plants.
