Piaget and Elementary Science
Chittenden, Edward A.
Science and Children, 8, 4, 9-15, Dec '70
Describes the intellectual development stages ascribed to children by Jean Piaget. Characteristics and examples are given for sensori-motor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational thinking periods. Implications are given for elementary school science education, including (1) formal instruction does not accelerate acquisition of operational systems and (2) cognitive growth is based on social, physical, and logico-mathematical experience.
