Abstract

Children enter the science classroom with ‘mental models’ of real-world phenomena surmised from their day-to-day experiences. Unchallenged, these models can persist into adulthood. Are these models scientifically accurate? How do we help a learner recognise and replace inaccurate models with scientifically accurate ones?
