Particles’ dance : A study on chemistry and dance as an aesthetic learning processes in preschool (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att öka kunskapen om hur dans som estetisk lärprocess kan påverka barns förklaringar om uppfattningen kring materiens oförstörbarhet utifrån en lösningsprocess. I en semistrukturerad gruppintervju fick barnen förklara samma kemiska fenomen både före och efter att de fått gestalta fenomenet genom dans. Dansen i studien gestaltade partiklarnas rörelse utifrån lösningsprocessen och avdunstningen. Resultatet visade att barn använder sig av tre olika typer av förklaringsmodeller för att förklara det kemiska fenomenet. De tre förklaringsmodellerna är naturvetenskapliga, animistiska och magiska förklaringsmodeller. Undersökningen visar att andelen naturvetenskapliga förklaringsmodeller ökade efter dansaktiviteten. Studien tyder på att dans som estetisk lärprocess kan gynna barns lärande när det gäller kemiinnehåll i förskolan. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to increase knowledge about how dance as aesthetic learning process can affect children's explanations of the perception of the matter indestructibility based on a solution process. In a semi-structured group interview, the children were able to explain the same chemical phenomena both before and after the gestation of the phenomenon through dance. The dance in the study portrayed the movements of the particles based on the solution process and evaporation. The result showed that children use three different types of explanation models to explain the chemical phenomenon. The three explanatory models are natural science, animistic and magical explanatory models. The survey shows that the proportion of scientific explanatory models increased after the dance activity. The study suggests that dance as an aesthetic learning process can benefit children's learning in terms of chemistry content in preschool.
