Most and sky meet together) that he can see.

Most children’s misconceptions are often logical as they are using their experiences. These experiences may not be as wide as an adult, which is why it might be incorrect. However, children are still young, curious and ready to explore the world with what they have in the meantime which are based on their prior experiences, their senses and finally come to a conclusion.One of the characteristics of children’s conceptions is that they tend to be centred on themselves and they are heavily reliant on the immediate context and the data of their senses. For example, a young child playing on an empty field and so happens notices the furthest point (where the earth and sky meet together) that he can see. The child might assume that point is where the earth ends as the child cannot see anything else beyond the horizon.Another characteristic of children’s conceptions is children are often more linear in their thinking about causality than adults are. It is hard for children to juggle many factors at the same time. If theories contradict one another, children won’t make a big deal out of it as they do not seem to understand that contradictions are acceptable. For example, you are playing hide and seek with your child. The child hides underneath the bed but did not realise her feet are out. However, she is convinced that her mother won’t be able to find her down there as the child is not able to see the mother underneath the bed. Children are still learning different conceptions.Lastly, the third characteristic of children’s thinking is tenacity. It means that children do not want to give up the concepts and theories they work so hard to make. They went through many of their experiences and struggle to come up with the understanding. They are not about to drop the ideas just because someone says so. For example, a child may think it is not a living thing as after many times playing with a plant either accidentally stepping on it or pulling its leaves and flowers, the plant has never responded. Unlike an animal like accidentally stepping on your pet’s tail, the pet would react. So when the child attends a class and the teacher begins telling everyone that plants are living things, the child might not accept the teacher’s answer at first.
