For my Life - Span Development class we have an assignment that incluides the Piaget's 6 substages of sensorimotor development. With this assignment we are supposed to find a toy for each substage, and answer the following questions:
Why is the toy appropriate?
How it will enhance the substage?
How it builds schemes?How it will enhance language development, deferred imitation, explicit memory, and implicit memory?
How will the toy enhance object premenece?
The problem is that I don't know what a infant in the 1st Stage, Simple reflexes, would play with. Most babies I know between birth and 3 mos. sleep, eat, and poop. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
