Some Scientists Think There's a Melon inside
Primary Science Review, n96 p8-9 Jan-Feb 2007
The Ancient Greeks saw the world as earth, air, fire and water. This article presents some children's ideas about what makes up the Earth. Children were asked to share what they thought the Earth was made of, how old it is, how long it took to create, and what is inside it. The answers indicate that they often have emerging though vague ideas about cosmology, geology and time, as well as some fascinating misconceptions.
