Harper, Lawrence V.; Huie, Karen S.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v44 n3 p423-46 Jul 1998
This seven-year study investigated facets of preschoolers' activity choices and use of physical facilities, including the effects of specific play sites on social relationships. Results showed that group makeup, and gender can affect play choices, while relationships between physical environment and play were undetermined. Different patterns of social exchanges across play sites were highlighted. (JPB)
