Do Props Matter in the Dramatic Play Center? The Effects of Prop Realism on Children's Play.
Hogan, Claudia; Howe, Nina
Canadian Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education, v8 n4 p51-66 Jan 2001
This study investigated the effects of prop realism on the play of 24 preschoolers. Observations of play sessions revealed that highly realistic props and low-realism props elicited equal amounts of group dramatic play. However, low- realism props generated greater diversity of play themes, more fantasy role enactments, and more nonintended use of props than high-realism props. (TJQ)
