The purpose of this study was to investigate how kindergarten children’s observational drawings impact their information retention. This research was conducted in an urban school in a large metropolitan area in the southwestern United States. Forty-two kindergarten children participated in this study; approximately 97% of them qualified for free and/or reduced lunch. For this study, children’s retention of factual information was compared using a paired t-test of when they drew and when they didn’t. Children scored higher on all 7 items—descriptions of observation, location, action, color, size, shape, and sound—when they drew than when they didn’t. Findings were statistically significant for descriptions of observation (t = 3.08, p = .00) and location (t = 2.36, p = .02).
fatalis was a large extinct felid distinguished by
their two impressive maxillary canines and surprisingly low canine
fracture rates. Previous theories regarding their attack strategy have suggested
delivering damage by a bite with their maxillary
canines. It has also been previously suggested
that the canines could have been used to deliver a non-biting stab with
an open jaw. It has been generally hypothesized that the attack was delivered to the neck of their large herbivore prey. Smilodon
fatalis could have used their canines in a non-biting stab delivered
with a closed jaw for the sole purpose of creating a pneumothorax. Creation of a pneumothorax would maximize immediate attack lethality, and minimize exposure of its canines to fracture.
