Option #1: Early Childhood and Toys, Essay

Remember that it is advantageous for you to complete the Critical Thinking option that corresponds to the option you selected for the final Portfolio Project, due in Week 8. If you wish to complete Portfolio Project Option #1, then also complete Critical Thinking Assignment Option #1 as well.

For this paper, you will write an essay about the games/activities/materials children use. You will name those games/activities/materials and describe which preoperational type of thinking each addresses and how each would help the child to gain one of the types of operational thinking.

Visit a preschool or early elementary school classroom, both when children are there (for you to observe them interacting with the toys) and when they are not (so you can look around the room).
