As for the data collection tool, the reviewed form of "Bracken Basic Concept Scale" was used in order to measure concept developments of the children.

In order to test the significance of the difference between the pre-test and post-test scores of the experimental and control groups and the significance among the pre-test, post-test and permanency test results of the experimental group, non-parametrical statistical methods were used.
