Children's Understanding of Substances, Part 1: Recognizing Chemical Change.
Johnson, Philip
International Journal of Science Education, v22 n7 p719-37 Jul 2000
Considers substance identity and pupils' interaction with the scientific idea of melting and boiling behavior as a means for identification and assessment of purity. Presents evidence that suggests that children do not naturally have a concept of substance identity that allows them to recognize chemical change as a possibility. (Contains 31 references.)
