Abstract:Aim of this study was to examine the effect of an analogy with or without and additional lesson about experimenting on finding interaction-effects. The study was conducted with primary schoolchildren (n=55) from two elementary schools. The children were divided into two experimental conditions, the analogy condition and the analogy+lesson condition. Both conditions started with an analogy. The children in the analogy condition then started with the learning tasks where they were supposed to find interaction-effects. The analogy+lesson condition started after the lesson with the learning tasks. It was expected that the children in the analogy+lesson condition would discover more interactions in compare to the analogy condition. No significant effects were found. Children in the analogy+lesson condition did find more correct irrelevant effects. The lesson about experimenting does have an effect on finding irrelevant effects, but does not have an effect on finding interaction or main-effects.
