Oh, Phil Seok; Ha, Heesoo; Yoo, Yeon Joon – Science Education, 2022
This study aimed to explore what kinds of epistemological messages were conveyed through teacher discourse in modeling-based and traditional elementary science classrooms and how teachers framed the two classrooms distinctively through these messages. Data came from two sixth-grade teachers' science classrooms--one characterized as a…

Ross, Keith – Primary Science, 2021
Just because food packaging, the textbooks, and teachers, all say food contains energy, students do not have to believe them. The author uses "The tale of the tortoise and his nose," which is available to read on this blog: https://oxygen-energy-life.blogspot.com, as a context for teaching about oxygen. This article outlines the adult…

Martins, Juliana; Cunha, Jennifer; Lopes, Sílvia; Moreira, Tânia; Rosário, Pedro – Educational Psychology Review, 2022
School engagement is considered an antidote to several academic problems found in middle and high school. Previous data highlight the importance of understanding school engagement in early years. The present systematic review aims to outline investigations regarding school engagement in elementary school. Findings are expected to (i) help…

Richards, Walter Bruce – Physics Teacher, 2021
Einstein's special theory of relativity includes many non-intuitive and apparently paradoxical conclusions about space and time. One of these is time dilation, the fact that a clock moving relative to an observer runs slower than an identical clock at rest in the observer's reference frame. This is clearly exhibited in the extended mean lifetime…

Bostrom, Carol – Primary Science, 2021
There are arguably advantages to adopting a cross-curricular approach to planning, teaching and learning. This approach often works well for incorporating scientific skills and the wider perspectives of geography, technology and maths. It can help children to develop and consolidate their understanding through practical application and gives them…

Waller, Nicky – Primary Science, 2021
Given that young children will become the next generation of adults, it is important that they are educated about sustainability issues so that they can take positive action to help preserve their future in a changing world. In this article, the author describes how primary children can learn how to help to look after the planet and explores how…

Winter, Jane – Primary Science, 2021
The logistics of finding and inviting STEM professionals (volunteers from science-based industries, universities, etc.) into the classroom can appear daunting, combined with fact-handing over control of some of the lesson. So, do the benefits make the effort worthwhile? In this article, the author describes the impact that STEM professionals could…

Bianchi, Lynne – Primary Science, 2021
In this article, the author aims to open up thinking about a frequently used term -- disadvantage -- and to consider it in relation to the primary science classroom teaching and learning experiences. With the support of education charities such as the Comino Foundation and the SHINE Trust, the author discusses how her team has been exploring the…

Trew, Alison J. – Primary Science, 2021
Since the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) launched its Cutting-edge Science in Primary Schools Project a little over a year ago, the authors have written 30 "I bet you didn't know…" articles for primary teachers and children. Accompanying teacher guides describe related activities and investigations that children can carry out in…

Stuart, Ian – Primary Science, 2021
The atom is science's biggest idea! And now it is known that even children from 4 years of age can grasp it, creating science education's biggest worldwide opportunity. Dr. Jenny Donovan and Dr. Carole Haeusler of the University of Southern Queensland conducted multiple studies to show that primary-age children, mostly aged 7-9 years in their…

Preston, Christine M.; Hubber, Peter J.; Xu, Lihua – Research in Science Education, 2022
Primary school topics involving abstract concepts are challenging to teach. Electric circuits can be simply constructed but complex to explain. New approaches in teaching students for understanding are needed to advance practice in primary science. This paper combines the strengths of multimodality research perspectives with variation theory to…

Ruggiero, Matteo Luca; Mattiello, Sara; Leone, Matteo – Physics Education, 2021
Why is modern physics still today, more than 100 years after its birth, the privilege of an elite of scientists and unknown for the great majority of citizens? The answer is simple, since modern physics is in general not present in the standard physics curricula, except for some general outlines, in the final years of some secondary schools. But,…

Church, David – Primary Science, 2021
As the conversation across the country progresses towards diversity and decolonisation of the curriculum, it is important to consider the many ways of demonstrating recognition of diversity. At Harris Garrard Academy in southeast London, educators have gone to great lengths to increase the visibility of race and ethnicity in the curriculum,…

Johal, Kulvinder Kaur – Primary Science, 2021
The lack of diversity in some areas very much ties in with the data on school staff promotions and moving into senior positions. The United Kingdom government's schools workforce data shows black and Asian people are underrepresented in the teaching workforce. According to recent figures covering state schools in England: Just 4.7% of teachers in…

Rogers, Ben – Primary Science, 2021
There is a tradition in primary classes of using rich authentic activities to teach science. The idea of pupils learning science through experiment and discovery is appealing. But this is not how children are taught in other subjects. When children learn to read, there are tiny steps, mastering each one before moving onto more challenging books.…
