Abstract [en]

This study aims to investigate how peer collaboration affects individual pupils’ conceptions of speciation. Earlier research on evolution has primarily focused on children’s conceptions using individual and/or written examination. In this study, individual interviews and group discussions have been performed with eight 9-years old pupils who lack formal education on evolution. The results show that the pupils develop their conceptions on speciation in group discussions compared to individual interviews. This result suggests that also younger pupils improve their conceptual understanding in peer collaboration.
