Pupils' Representations of Models of Water.
Pereira, Mariana P.; Pestana, Maria Elisa M.
International Journal of Science Education, v13 n3 p313-19 Jul-Sep 1991
The pencil-and-paper assignment "Represent water in its three states using a model" was given to pupils (n=227) from eighth to twelfth grades. The findings show that the dominant model used was the space filling type; movement of particles was indicated by a minority of pupils; size of the model changed when drawn in different states.
