Abstract

This report aims, through interviews, observations and literature review to examine what some of the youngest children know about the heart, blood and bloodstream. The sample size was twenty children, half of them are at the age of three and the other half is at the age of six.

The interviews showed that children at the age of six had better knowledge than children at the age of three, but one child knew that we have the blood corpuscle in the body. He was also the only one who mentioned the blood corpuscle of all children who participated in the research. Children at the age of three could not see the functional relationship between the blood and heart. One child who was six years told that the air we breathe goes directly in the heart from where the blood is circulating to the rest of the body, together with the food.

Keywords: heart, blood, bloodstream, the body

Sammanfattning

Uppsatsens syfte är att genom intervjuer, observationer och litteraturstudie undersöka vad några av de yngsta barnen vet om hjärtat, blodet och blodomloppet. Undersökningen gäller tjugo barn, hälften av dem är i treårsålder och den andra hälften är i sexårsåldern.

Intervjuerna visade att sexåringar hade i stort sett bättre kunskaper än treåringar men en av treåringar visste att vi har blodkroppar i kroppen. Han var också den enda som nämnde blodkroppar av alla barn som deltog i undersökningen. Treåringar kunde inte se det funktionella sambandet mellan blodet och hjärtat. En av sexåringarna berättade att luften vi andas in hamnar direkt i hjärtat där den blir blod som cirkulerar vidare till resten av kroppen, tillsammans med maten.
