Abstract [en]

Connecting science to students’ everyday-life experiences is an important theme in science education discourse. The aim of this article is to explore in what ways ‘everyday-life’ is used in the science classroom and what problems are solved through the use of ‘everyday-life’. The research approach is ethnographic. Data was gathered through participant observation during one semester in two Swedish science classes. Results show that ‘everyday-life’ is brought into the classroom and made into school tasks within different types of activities; enculturation into science, education of scientifically literate citizens and making science interesting. The results underscore the importance of understanding the use of ‘everyday-life’ in science classrooms as embedded in science classroom practice.
