Reading and understanding myths through play in pre-school education: The present paper aims at evaluating the contribution of play to the procedure of reading and understanding myths in Greek pre-school education. Specifically, it describes the results of a pilot study that took place in kindergartens of Thessaloniki over a period of three months in 2006. Fifty pre-school children were involved in the study, forming two groups: a control-group and a group under experimentation. The research was carried out in two stages separated by a teaching intervention based on a game. In the first stage the two groups were given a pre-test, then the intervention took place and during the second stage both groups were given a meta-test. Statistical analysis of the test results yielded valuable conclusions concerning the extent to which, the aforementioned teaching intervention, contributed to the pre-schoolers’ reading and understanding of myths.
