We sitting on the knees and dig in the soil. : Preschoolteachers experiences of working with the subject of biology for the youngest preeschool children. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of my study is to find out whether and how preschool teachers work with biology with the youngest preschool children. I also intend to investigate whether teachers in toodler groups believes that the biology related targets within the curriculum preschool policy document are achievable and how they intend to work with them practically. I have conducted interviews with four preschool teachers who are working with the youngest preschool children. The interviews describe how the preschool teachers work with biology integrated into the everyday practice by taking note of what the children show interest in and then acts together with them. They emphasizes the importance of working close to the child to overcome barriers and demonstrate sustainable approach to nature. The preschool teachers believes that the curriculum documents related to biology are reasonable and achievable, they claims to be working with them on the children's level.
