How Do Children Learn by Handling Objects?
Williams, Connie K.; Kamii, Constance
Young Children, v42 n1 p23-46 Nov 1986
Maintains that young children learn to think when they act on objects, thus developing what Piaget refers to as physical and logico-mathematical knowledge. Teachers can encourage thinking/mental action by creating situations that are personally meaningful to the children, by providing decision-making opportunities, and by providing opportunities for children to exchange viewpoints with peers.
