Write an essay of 750-1,000 words in which you examine the developmental stages of children from Birth to Age 5/Pre-K and K to Age 8/Grade 3. Create and include in the essay two case studies of 150-200 words each; one should describe a child in Piaget's sensorimotor stage of development and one in Piaget's preoperational stage of development.
In addition to the case studies, use the GCU eLibrary to research two recent articles on brain development and devote the remainder of the paper to comparing Piaget's two developmental stages to what you find in your research.
Prepare this assignment according to the GCU guidelines found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
