Quelles conditions influencent la réalisation de chaînes énergétiques par des élèves de cycle 3 (grade 4 et 5) ?



This study describes the first results of an exploratory study focused on the conditions of the task that may affect how grade 4/5 students make energetic chains. The conditions observed in this study are the number of elements included in the energetic chain, the total number of objects presented to the students on each picture and the type of objects that the pictures refer to. A methodology type survey from questionnaire was implemented to understand these effects. The results show that the size of the chain and the number of objects on the picture have an impact on the energetic chains made by the students, while the type of objects that the pictures refer to appears to have little influence.
