The Piagetian concepts or developmental stages

Identify the Piagetian concepts or developmental stages demonstrated in each scenario. 1. A little boy and his older brother are playing Monopoly. The older brother hands out the banknotes. He tries to cheat his brother by giving him fewer banknotes. The younger brother notices that he has fewer banknotes. Then, the older brother splits the younger brother’s pile of banknotes into two smaller piles. Now the younger brother is happy because he now believes that he has more money than his brother; his brother has only one pile but he has two piles. Identify the developmental stage of the younger child and the phenomenon that allows the younger child to be cheated by his older brother.
2. Can you think of another example of this concept or stage?
3. Two children are asked “What would you do if all the air was pumped out of this room?” Tommy gives the person asking the question a weird look and says “That’s a stupid question–it could never happen!” Jenny answers “Run out!” What would explain the differences in the two answers?
4. Can you think of another example of this concept or stage?
5. A child is on the phone talking to his grandma. He tells her about the art project he is working on at school. He picks up the picture and says, “Look at my drawing! Isn’t it pretty?” Identify the phenomenon that explains such behavior.
6. Can you think of another example of this concept or stage? Can you give an example of how you might use your understanding of memory to improve your performance?
