Abstract [en]

This is an observation and an interview study with four preschools and nine preschool teachers. The purpose of the study is to find out how the forest can be used in relation to the curriculum (Swedish national agency for education 2010). The results showed that preschool teachers make use of the curriculum through activities in the forest. The main focus in the forest is to let children play with each other and the natural sciences. Activities like math and cultural arts are also used in the forest. Preschool teachers see opportunities with the forest as it gives the children free spaces to play in and invites dialogs about the animals and plants. Large groups of children were the main difficulty, because the preschool teachers consider that they may be too few teachers in relation to the number of children.

Abstract [sv]

I denna undersökning har fyra förskolor deltagit genom intervjuer och observationer. I de fyra förskolorna var det nio pedagoger som intervjuades. Syftet med undersökningen var att granska hur skogen kan användas som läromiljö utifrån läroplanen (Skolverket 2010). Resultatet visade att pedagogerna använder sig av läroplanen som grund för aktiviteter som görs i samband med vistelse i skogen. Den fria leken samt naturvetenskapen har fått störst fokus i undersökningen, men även ämnen som matematik och skapande aktiviteter används i skogen. Pedagogerna ser möjligheter med skogen då det ger barnen fria utrymmen samt att det naturligt skapar naturvetenskapliga dialoger. Stora barngrupper var den största nackdelen i samband med skogsvistelsen, då de anser att de kan vara för få pedagoger gentemot antalet barn.
