"Well You Might Be Right but..."
Primary Science Review, n82 p28-29 Mar-Apr 2004
Children and teachers find understanding the solar system, especially how the motion of the Earth and Moon causes seasons and tides, difficult. Often, within a group, each person knows part of the "right explanation" but no one can put these parts together on their own. In this article, the author recounts how her group of PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) students gained understanding through sharing their knowledge.
