Abstract: The author describes an imaginary clinical trial performed using her daughter’s kindergarten class in Arlington, Massachusetts as study subjects. The children are introduced to several age-appropriate concepts related to clinical trials including defining a study question and randomization. Basic concepts in clinical trials are introduced, the Kindergarten Clinical Trial is described, and possible additional activities with kindergarteners and older children are discussed.

Keywords: clinical trial, role-play, elementary school
