What Kindergartners Know about Class Inclusion Hierarchies.
Greene, Terry R.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v57 n1 p72-88 Feb 1994
Thirty-six kindergartners were asked to respond to questions and construct figures designed to test their knowledge of hierarchical relations. Subjects had considerable knowledge of subset and superset classification, and could draw transitive inferences with little difficulty; however, they appeared to have little appreciation of the asymmetry relation nor did they understand the significance of branching on hierarchical relationships.
