European Journal of Educational Research, v7 n3 p567-581 2018
The aim of this study is to determine the problem solving skills and science process skills of six-year-old children who attended kindergarten and whether or not there is a difference in problem solving skills and science process skills of children receiving and not receiving the education with GEMS program. In the study using the experimental model with pre-test, post-test and control group, the sample group consisted of a total of 25 children including 11 children in experimental group and 14 children in control group who attended the preschool education. The "GEMS Program" was applied throughout a school year after applying pre-test to the children in the experimental group. In the scope of the study, "General Information Form" to obtain the data about the children and their families, "Parental Evaluation Form" including the evaluation of the parents about their children, "Problem Solving Scale in Science Education (PSSSE)" to determine the problem solving skills of the children, and "Science Processes Observation Form (SPOF)" to measure the science process skills of the children were used. According to the results of the study, while a statistically significant difference was observed between the Problem Solving Scale in Science Education mean scores of the children in the experimental group who participated in the GEMS Education Program and of the children in the control group, no statistically significant difference was observed between the mean scores obtained by the children in the experimental group from Science Processes Observation Form and the mean scores of the children in the control group.
