Imagine you are going to make cookies with the help of four children. Charlie is 2 years old, Penelope is 6, Isabelle is 9, and Brian is 11.
1. Based upon Piaget’s four stages of cognitive development, how will each child help you in making cookies? For instance, will one child be able to assist in pouring flour into a bowl, whereas another child will simply play with the flour?
2. Identify the developmental stage of each child and describe how each child will assist in making cookies based upon their developmental stage.
