Preschool children´s encounters with buds in nature : A study comparing children´s thought processes and learning activity connected to natural science (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med min studie var att jämföra en grupp 3-åringar och en grupp 5-åringar när det gäller kunskap om knoppar och förmågan att tillgodogöra sig kunskap om knoppar. I min studie har jag även undersökt vilka intressen och samtal som barnen själva haft under pågående aktivitet. Bakgrunden till min undersökning var att som nyutbildad förskollärare få kunskap om vad barn själva väljer att titta på under en planerad naturvetenskaplig aktivitet i skogen och om samma upplägg på aktivitet passar två olika åldersgrupper barn. För att få svar har jag gjort observationer av två olika åldersgrupper med barn under två skogsaktiviteter samt intervjuat samtliga barn. Resultatet av min undersökning visar att trots likvärdiga förkunskaper om knoppar hade 5-åringarna tillgodogjort sig mer kunskap än 3-åringarna. 3-åringarnas fokus hamnade mest på det som naturen hade att erbjuda även om de bitvis intresserade sig för ”knoppletandet”. 5-åringarna visade på ett betydligt större engagemang och intresse och skötte nästan hela ”knoppis” aktiviteten själva.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of my study was to compare  a group of 3-years old and a group of 5-years old children in matter of their knowledge about buds and their ability to utilize knowledge about buds. In my examination I have also investigated what interested them and their conversations during the activity. The background to my examination was, as a recently educated preschool teatcher, achieve knowledge in matter of what children themselves choose to watch during a natural science activity in the forest, and if the same kind of activity fits two children groups of different age. To get the answers to my questions I have made observations of two groups of children, of different age, during two forest activities as well as interviewing all children. The result of my investigation shows that despite similar prior knowledge of buds the 5-years old has acquired more knowledge than the 3-years old. The 3-years old focused more on the nature itself rather than the task. The 5-years old showed a greater dedication and interest to the task and handled the task almost the whole activity by themselves.
