This storyboard does not have a description.
36 boys and 36 girls, aged 3 to 5, were split into eight groups of six children each, the remaining children were set as a control group.
Children were individually taken in a room with an adult model who arranged some toys. In the non-aggressive conditions the adult would continue to arrange the toys calmly. In the aggressive conditions, the adult would act out, hitting the bobo doll and showing verbal aggression.
Before observing if the children would imitate the behaviour they had seen, all children were subjected to 'mild aggressive arousal'. This involved the children being give toys which they could play with, however after 2 minutes the children were told they could no longer play with the toys, causing them to become angry and frustrated.
The children were hen taken into a room for 20 minutes, where hey were give aggressive toys such as a mallet and also non-aggressive toys such as crayons and paper, and also a bobo doll.
The children were then observed by an experimenter to rate their different levels of aggression.
Their observations found that children that were subjected to aggressive behaviour at the start of the experiment, imitated this behaviour through physical and verbal aggression. They were given a much higher rating of aggression than those in the non-aggressive and control groups.
