The role of symbol making and communication as a means to help young children construct their own knowledge is studied in this documentation of a long-term project. Children construct a well-formed understanding of a complex event (an Olympic-style athletic event for four- to six-year-olds) through the use of their bodies, invented symbols, and conversations with their peers.
