Language and Children's Conceptions of Plants as Living Things by Ruth Stavy( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between language, thought, and concept formation has been a central issue in many studies and theoretical discussions in various domains--philosophy, psychology, anthropology, and linguistics. The relation between language and concept development can be framed as two opposing questions: (1) Does the child learn concepts first and then later attach words to them? or (2) Are concepts formed when a child tries to attach meanings to words she hears? The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between language and the development of children's conception of plants as living things. This was done by comparing the responses of children with different mother tongues (Hebrew and English) to different tasks (verbal and non-verbal) related to the conception of plants as living things. The children (N=696) were from each of grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 in Canada and Israel. It was found that both groups of children were less successful in the non-verbal task than in the verbal task, and that Hebrew-speaking children performed at a lower level than English-speaking children in both the verbal and non-verbal tasks. These findings suggest that the difficulty in classifying plants as living things is conceptual in origin and may also suggest that language affects concept development on both the verbal and perceptual levels.

Children's Conceptions of Plants as Living Things by Naomi Wax( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, the attitudes of Israeli children aged 6 to 15 years were surveyed regarding their conceptions of plants as living things. It was desired to find out whether children consider plants to be alive, the knowledge differences between the different age groups in the study, how children classify plants according to biological criteria and correlations between the classification according to the concept of living/non-living and the classification according to biological criteria. Both individual interviews and paper-and-pencil questionnaires were used in which children were asked to classify animals, plants and inanimate objects. It was found that: (1) there was a high percentage of incorrect classifications of plants at all ages; and (2) there were no consistent connections between the classification of plants into living/non-living and according to biological criteria. The study proposes that part of the deviance of Israeli children from others in other research studies could be explained by characteristics of the Hebrew language. (Cw)
