The Effects of a Creative Movement Program on Motor Creativity of Children Ages Three to Five.
Wang, Joanne Hui-Tzu
This study investigated the effects of a creative movement program on the motor creativity of Taiwanese preschool children, hypothesizing that there would be no significant different in motor creativity between children participating in the creative movement program and those participating in a control group. The intervention group completed a 6-week, 2-day per week, creative movement program which was based on Gilbert's (1992) conceptual approach lesson plan format. The control group participated in an unstructured free setting. Pretest and posttest data were collected using Torrance's Thinking Creatively in Action and Movement scale, which assessed changes in the children's motor creativity. Results indicated that the experimental group had significantly higher levels of motor creativity than did the control group, suggesting that the creative movement program was essential to the development of the total child.
