Spatial Representation of Geometrical Relations in the Drawings of Young Children
Hae Kyung Hong
This study investigated young children`s spatial representation of geometrical relations based on their drawings of cube buildings. One hundred seventy-six children from 3 to 6 years of ages were selected from private kindergartens and day care centers. Their drawings were classified into 6 developmental levels: level 1 - drawings show only scribbles or several circles; level 2 - drawings show plane squares from a front view; level 3 - positional relations are included in the drawings; level 4 - separate-joint relations or the general outline of a cube building are shown; level 5 - rotated drawing and an additional square for hidden faces are attempted to represent the lateral view; level 6 - parallel lines are drawn to represent 3-dimensional structures. Three-to four-year-olds were between levels 1 and 2; four-to six-year olds were between levels 3 and 4; and children over six years old were between levels 3 and 5.
