Abstract

This study concerns the analysis of 2 Greek science textbooks for teaching Physics in the 2nd grade of Greek Lyceum (K-11) regarding the scientific practices and the crosscutting concepts included. It was found that (a) certain scientific practices are used very often in the textbooks and other are used rarely or not used at all, (b) certain crosscutting concepts appear often in the textbooks and other appear rarely, and (c) the textbooks investigated do not differ considerably in regards to the frequency of appearance of scientific practices and crosscutting concepts. Relevant implications and limitations are discussed.
