Pellegrini, A. D.
Journal of Adolescence, v15 n3 p241-54 Sep 1992
Examined extent to which sixth and seventh grade students' (n=133) preference for outdoor activity changed during middle school. Found that boys', compared to girls', preference to play outdoors existed only in sixth grade. Factor analyses indicated three factors describing students: Teachers' Choice, Active Female Oriented, and Outdoor Male Oriented. Factors varied as children progressed through middle school.
