Preschoolers learningThe Question:

Do children 3 to 5 years old learn from listening to questions asked by others?

The Study:

Researchers at the University of Texas in Dallas gave 179 children ages 3 to 5 years simple problems to solve. The children were in a setting where they had the opportunity to listen to adults asking questions about how to solve the problem.

The Results:

Even though the children were not instructed to listen to the adults, they demonstrated that they did learn from what they heard the adults ask about the problems. The children were able to solve the problems quicker from what they heard the adults say.
