Children's Astronomy: Implications for Curriculum Developments at Key Stage 1 and the Future of Infant Science in England and Wales.
Sharp, John
International Journal of Early Years Education, v3 n3 p17-49 Aut 1995
Notes the remarkable success of the astronomy component of the National Curriculum in England and Wales. Presents findings of a survey of children's astronomical beliefs, which are consistent with constructivist theory, and proposes the value of children's astronomy learning. Argues that a 1995 revision in the National Curriculum, which would delay and marginalize astronomy teaching, is misguided and premature. (TM)
