Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate social interaction patterns of an Arab culture as reflected by play of the children in the country of Syria. It was hypothesized that the games and play activities of the Arab children would reflect social interaction patterns of their culture, and that the games and play activities could be identified and designated with regard to interaction patterns. It was also hypothesized that social interaction patterns of the Arab culture could be described and categorized. Further, there would be differentiations as to who participated in varied games and play activities. For this study, the investigator was concerned primarily with the social interaction patterns of cooperation and competition.
