Abstract [en]

Lego – What happens when preschool children construct with Lego? A qualitative study about childrens interactions and communication around constructing with Lego. This study is in part based on my own personal interest in Lego and is also a study about communication, relationship and social competence. The aim of my study is to highlight these three concepts in the construction with Lego. All humans communicate in one way or another. My study is aimed towards communication during a special event which in this instance is construction play with Lego. To construct with Lego and at the same time talk about life and the experiences the children have had has been interesting and rewarding to observe. I have chosen to do three different observations in three different group of children and also interviewed two pre-schoolteachers. The children in my study where between the ages of 3-5.

The study addresses two questions:

1. What do preschool children communicate during construction play with Lego?

2. How does a preschool child interact with other children and with the material Lego?

I have discovered that the children talk, play and interact with their own life experiences and fantasies. I have also discovered that if someone is not able there will always be someone else who can. In my study, I have noted that the children give and take of each other to implement their building or play. The environment around the construction has a significant importance in how the play, talk and interaction develop. There should be a given place in the preschool for Lego, to enable children to showcase their constructions so they can talk about them.

The conclusion of this study is that children communicate and share experiences with each other. The conversations between the children was often about their normal day to day activities and how they shared their knowledge. One could say it was a mix of life, play, feelings, relations, friendship and communication.
