Understanding Children's Activity Memory: The Role of Outcomes.
Ratner, Hilary Horn; Foley, Mary Ann; McCaskill, Pamela
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n2 p162-91 Jun 2001
Three experiments investigated effectiveness of activity outcomes as 5- to 7-year-olds' memory cues. Outcomes either were maintained during activity and preserved in the end product, or "disappeared" during activity and transformed in the end product. Findings indicated that memory for the activity varied with cue condition and with presence of the end product, posing implications for science education. (Author/KB)
