The Relation of Age and Social Class Factors in Children's Social Pretend Play to Cognitive and Symbolic Ability.
Doyle, Anna-Beth; And Others
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v14 n4 p395-410 Dec 1991
The amount of social pretend play in free-play sessions of small groups of five to seven year olds, and the symbolic features of this play, were noted. Conservation, verbal symbol substitution, and role-playing skills, were assessed as measures of cognitive symbolic skill. Results provide no evidence that these social class differences reflect differing cognitive abilities. (Author/LB)
