We have chosen to study a class with ten-year old children. We have used qualitative methods, such as participant observations and group interviews. Our result showed that children make their own choices, when it comes to how, where and with whom they want to play. Adult have no saying. The children have shown us that they play together, and that they also play in groups separated by gender. Boys play many at a time and their relations are created during activities. Girls play more often in pairs, and the activity is dependent upon which relationships they have to each other. Children experience a good leader synonym with a good friend. It's important to be kind, helpful and democratic. Rules are important for both boys and girls when they're playing. (Less)
