Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Daniel P. Shepardson, Elizabeth B. Moje, and A.K. McClelland
Examines 52 fifth graders' written and oral responses to determine the impact of a scientific demonstration on their understanding of air pressure. For one-third of the children, the demonstration reinforced previous understanding. Recommendations for using demonstrations to promote children's scientific understanding are presented.
