Examined in four studies the predictive value of organizing locations into a systematic figure for predicting preschoolers' use of spatial relations in a mapping task. Found that seeing a dog pattern formed by search locations facilitated performance of 5-year-olds but not younger children. Verbal labels alone or adding lines to an unsystematic figure did not convey an advantage. (KB)
