Abstract:This study enlarges and expands, not only the ways of thinking about and looking at children's science investigations, but also the language we are then able to use when investigating and describing children's learning. From this study, constructs for investigating the development of fantasies, i.e. invitations to fantasy, support for fantasies, extensions of fantasies, and fantasy "contexts" in addition to "spheres of activity" and their relationship to fantasy development have emerged. With these constructs questions can be asked that there was no language for before. In addition to developing the new constructs, investigating how they articulate with other SSC constructs--that is, modes of engagement, ways of working, and science "connections"--expands the field of science education.
