Abstract

This article addresses the teaching of astronomy (day and night, seasons) in elementary school. First, we analyzed preservice elementary teachers’ understanding of astronomical concepts related to the Sun-Earth system. Taking into account the results of this analysis using a socio-constructivist approach, we designed a teaching sequence. We tested this sequence with different groups of future elementary school teachers, who showed improvement in their understanding of the Sun-Earth model.
