Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Kathleen E. Metz
This article describes research into the development of children's causal knowledge by analyzing changes in the content and form of the explanations they generate across the age span of three to nine years. Researchers also examine the balance and form of incremental versus fundamental changes in children coming to understand the working of gears.
