The Box, a Naturalistic Experiment with Young Children: The Same Object as Mediating Factor for Different Activities.
Glassman, Michael; Whaley, Kimberlee
Early Child Development and Care, v156 p63-71 Sep 1999
Compared the impact of a small box emitting sounds in response to nearby motion introduced into an infant/toddler and a preschool classroom to illustrate qualitative differences in how children of different ages recognize the same objects as mediating devices for activity. Found that the box became a social object for infants/toddlers and part of a cognitive activity for preschoolers. (Author/KB)
