develop a series of theme-based learning activities that focus on the basic concepts children develop during the preoperational and concrete operational stages
It’s spring and you’d like to engage your group of three- and four-year-olds in a series of learning activities based on a common theme related to the time of year. You want to make sure the activities will reinforce the basic concepts of math and science, especially the development of classification and logical thinking skills.
1. Describe at least three learning activities you can present to a group of three- and four-year-old students centered on some aspect of spring. Make sure each of the activities focuses on number conservation, seriation, spatial concepts, or causality. Design a fourth learning activity based on classification and logical thinking.
Write your self-evaluation after you have completed mapping out your plan.
1. For each activity:
a. Explain how this activity addresses the issues in the scenario.
