Umm...I Think: Student Formulated Conclusions to Science Activities.
Mayer, Naomi; Kight, Cindy
This paper describes a collaborative research project conducted by two first grade teachers. The project focuses on the use of hands-on science activities and the relationship between a teacher and a mentor teacher. An integrated curriculum with science as the central theme is employed and further developed through the joint efforts of the two teachers. Data collected consisted of student interviews, a student survey, and student science journals. Findings contribute to an understanding of oral language ability versus written language ability, the effect of an inadequate scientific vocabulary on science learning, and the various paths taken to achieve a correct answer.
