The Effects of the Structure of Play Objects on the Pretend Play of Low-Income Preschool Children.
McLoyd, Vonnie C.
Child Development, v54 n3 p626-35 Jun 1983
The effects of high-structure versus low-structure objects on various types and components of pretend play were examined in a sample of 36 low-income, predominantly Afro-American preschoolers. High-structure objects increased the frequency of noninteractive pretend play in three and one-half-year-old triads, but not in five-year-old triads. (Author/MP)
