Towards a Scientific Concept of 'Animal'.
Bell, Beverly; Barker, Miles
Journal of Biological Education, v16 n3 p197-200 Fall 1982
Evaluated teaching activites focusing on scientific concept of "animal" with three age groups: 5 (N=15), 9/10 (N=23) and 14 (N=20). Results suggest that these activities modified some students' concept of "animal" toward the scientific one, and that not understanding basic concepts (such as animal) may cause difficulties in understanding ecological concepts (such as consumer).
