    The curriculum of primary education in Slovenia includes a substantial part of science topics, which are being taught already in the nursery school. Therefore, teaching science in primary schools is very important. The primary school teachers in Slovenia are required to finish a 5-year study programme at the Faculty of Education. In the course of study, they take some science classes (separate subjects: physics, chemistry and biology) intertwining with a didactics of science. The science subjects are considered difficult by the Slovenian pre-service primary teachers. The science curricula for pupils of age 6–10 in Slovenia prescribe that pupils should assimilate the following physics concepts: heat, temperature, density, viscosity, electricity, shadows, weather, movement of liquids, and several other concepts. It is evident that in order to teach the gifted knowledge-seeking pupils and weak pupils, a primary school teacher should obtain substantial knowledge in physics. The article focuses on the teaching module related to the concepts of heat and temperature for the preservice primary teachers and its evaluation. The results of the pilot pre-post study without a control group performed in spring 2014 demonstrated the impact of the teaching module and confirmed the findings of several authors regarding the difficulties in understanding the content delivered in the module. The results also suggested guidelines for further research.
