Children's Analogical Reasoning about Natural Phenomena.
Pauen, Sabina; Wilkening, Friedrich
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n1 p90-113 Oct 1997
Three studies investigated the analogical reasoning of 127 children in a physics task using an analogy generated by the children. Found that 9- to 10-year olds showed spontaneous transfer in both negative and positive analogy training conditions, while 7-year olds showed no transfer in the positive analogy condition but transferred only selected aspects of the correct solution.
