Any way to equalize two baselines for research

I did an experiment comparing the amount of flower names you could teach kids using the tv vs. pictures. In the baseline the total of flower names 5 kids knew via the pictures was 57 and tv was 71. The post test for pictures the same group scored 102 and 145 for tv. I would assume the same kids learned the names more by watching the flower names in a video but I realize the baseline for the tv had a headstart. Is there anyway I can equalize this?
Thanks

I don't believe so. If a learning process is going on during the experiment it corrupts your results to the point of being inaccurate.

You'll have to use two separate and non-interacting groups of children each large enough to provide a representative sample.
