”För att de måste sitta ihop, för att kunna åka in överallt” : En studie om att undersöka förskolebarns uppfattningar om elektricitet
Sammanfattning: The purpose of the study is to determine how pre-school children between the ages of four and six perceive electricity. The study used observation as a method and a field study equipped with a video camera. A semi-structured interview was also conducted to capture the pre-school teacher’s experiences and perceptions of the study. The observation took place on three different occasions: a gathering, a lesson and a reading session. The material used was a fact-based children’s book with associated experimental material and tutorials. The result of the study showed that the children related their knowledge of what electricity is to their daily lives. They could distinguish whether things required electricity,and there was some knowledge that electricity has a source and of electricity's dangers. During the study, pre-school teachers raised both opportunities and challenges to design activities with electricity. The children showed great dedication and general knowledge of electricity and thought that the subject was interesting. There is a need for further education within physics and natural sciences for pre-school teachers. The goal for the pre-school teachers is to create a balance so that each and every child is offered meaningful education.
