1. Concrete Operational Stage of Child Development: Piaget's Logical Principles
As children age, they begin to understand the world in new ways. In this lesson, we'll look at Piaget's concrete operational stage of development and cognitive gains made during that time, including classification, seriation, and transitivity.
2. Understanding Change in Middle Childhood: Reversibility & Reciprocity
As children grow and learn, they begin to understand the world in more and more complex ways. In this lesson, we'll examine cognitive developments made in middle childhood, including the concepts of reversibility and reciprocity.
3. Attention, Memory, and Meta-Cognition Development in Middle Childhood
As kids grow and age, their intellectual (or cognitive) skills develop as well. Watch this lesson to find out more about cognitive development in childhood, including the relationship between attention and memory, and the skill of meta-cognition.
