Att utgå från frågor och situationer i förskolans vardag: Vilket naturvetenskapligt innehåll kan det leda till?

Abstract
Identifying and building on children’s questions and everyday situations is often discussed as a basis

for science learning in preschool. With a starting point in such questions and situations, children

should be given the opportunity to investigate and search for answers. What questions and situations

do preschool teachers identify as possible bases for science learning? What science content is present?

To what extent are the questions possible to investigate for children and preschool teachers through

experiments and observations or theoretical studies? The paper presents children’s questions and

everyday situations that might form the basis for science learning, as identified by... (More)

To what extent are the questions possible to investigate for children and preschool teachers through

experiments and observations or theoretical studies? The paper presents children’s questions and

everyday situations that might form the basis for science learning, as identified by preschool teachers

taking part in a science in-service training course. Based on a content analysis, we discuss possibilities

and difficulties that preschool teachers may face in their practice when they try to use these questions

and situations as a basis for science learning. (Less)
