Science Vocabulary Knowledge of Third and Fifth Grade Students.
Meyerson, J. J.; And Others
Science Education, v75 n4 p419-28 Jul 1991
Explored how elementary school children (n=267) "think" about science vocabulary through an examination of the organizational schemes children employ with science words. A common core of vocabulary was developed from textbooks. Students grouped the words and gave the group a name. One result indicated students had appropriate conceptual groupings for the vocabulary; however, they were not always science related. (PR)
