Science studies in pre-school activities : Teacher’s and children's views on the possibilities of discovering science (English)
Abstract [en]

According to the literature there are different ways to describe science. The work with science in pre-school is often to allow the children to experiment and explore various phenomena and hypotheses. The environment and the material is an important part in the discovery of science. The purpose of this study is to investigate teacher’s views and children's ideas about science in pre-school every-day. And we will also study the environment, the material and the teacher’s opportunities to contribute to discoveries and continued interest in science. The study was carried out in six pre-school, through interviews with children and teachers, as well as gathering of facts. The results showed that the most common discoveries in science in pre-schools were about animals, plants and water. Teachers believe that the key factors to examine science are the environment, the material available on pre-school and other environments such as forest and park.

Abstract [sv]

Enligt litteraturen finns det olika sätt att beskriva naturvetenskap. Arbetet med naturvetenskap på förskolan handlar ofta om att låta barnen experimentera och undersöka olika fenomen och hypoteser. Miljön och materialet är en viktig del i upptäckandet av naturvetenskap. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka pedagogernas syn och barnens tankar kring naturvetenskap i förskolans vardag. Dessutom syftar arbetet på att granska miljön, materialet och pedagogernas möjligheter att bidra till upptäckter och fortsatt intresse inom naturvetenskap. Undersökningen har gjorts på sex olika förskolor, genom intervjuer med barn och pedagoger, samt faktainsamling. Resultatet visade att de vanligaste upptäckterna inom naturvetenskap på förskolorna handlade om djur, växter och vatten. Pedagogerna anser att viktiga faktorer för att undersöka naturvetenskap är miljön och materialet som finns på förskolan, samt andra miljöer som skog och park.
