Abstract [sv]

It has been found that playing and acting can facilitate the learning of science-processes and conceptions. This is one way to learn the language of science. It is also reported that storytelling facilitate learning-processes. This kind of research have mostly been conducted with teenage-students. The aim of this project is to find new ways of learning scientific concepts and to test a model in teaching science for young children between 4 and 8 years old. The study is based on the theories of learning according to Vygotsky, where fantasy and creativity is an integrated part of learning and not only an illustration to theory. The model is a coupling between science, storytelling and drama, and the main question is if this can be a way to stimulate learning about science concepts and phenomena? Which effect can be obtained concerning theoretical knowledge? Which effect does this teaching-model have on understanding science concepts? A group of 25 children had a session with a story being told. This was followed by a drama in which the children were the actors. The drama visualized the story, which was about the immune-system. The children were interviewed 3-5 months after this occasion. Most of the children were able to recall the story or fragments of it. Some of them were even able to relate it to reality. A couple of them also used the scientific names that were included in the story. The result was surprising considering that the children only had one session about the subject and that there was no feedback between the session and the interviews. The result was also surprising considering the long time between session and interview. Teaching science to young children is not well developed in Sweden. This project therefore can be a step in this development
