SILVA, Lorena Clara Macedo da e ORTEGA, Antonio Carlos. Psychogenetical aspects from the practice of the Four Colors Game. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.2, pp. 289-298. ISSN 1413-294X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-294X2002000200010.
This work aimed at investigating the influences from the practice type (individual or in couples) on the understanding level reached by children aged 10 and 12 years old in the Four Colors Game. In the first stage, the understanding level was assessed from the subjects when painting three illustrations, and most of them was in the level I. In the second stage, a practice of the game took place through other two illustrations, when half of the subjects tried to paint them individually and the other half in couples. In the third stage, the subjects were reassessed according to the same instruments used previously, and most of the youngest reached the level I while most of the oldest reached the level II. By comparing the results of the evaluations, we noticed an improvement in the understanding level, after the practice of the game. However, that improvement could not be attributed to the practice type of game.
