The main purpose of the present study was to investigate second year classroom teacher education students’ misconceptions and learning difficulties related to gas concepts. The study was carried out during the last academic year at a state university in Turkey. About 100 second year students were the participants of the study. Gas Concept Test developed by Yalçınkaya (2010) was administered to the students to determine the students’ misconceptions and their understanding of gas concepts. The  results revealed that the students had misconceptions, such as gas particles expand when heated, shrink when cooled; particles are unevenly scattered in any enclosed space; particles rise and stay away from heat, etc. The misconceptions and learning difficulties of the classroom teacher students should be remedied by suitable conceptual change strategies. So, these erroneous ideas cannot pass on primary pupils.
