Conservation: understand the concept of conservation – clear evidence of operations. Decentration: the ability to focus on more than one part of a problem. Reversibility: children begin to work through a problem forwards AND backwards Classification : the beginning of sorting items and objects into concrete groups; aware of hierarchies (can focus on the relation between general category AND two specific categories) Seriation : the ability to create series and sort items along these series. At 6 years old, children create series efficiently; sorting and unsorting items. o Also begin to seriate mentally; given that A is longer than B and B is longer than C – can infer that A is longer than C Spatial Reasoning: children perform mental rotations ; allowing them to align their frame with someone else in a different orientation to observe their view. (Can identify left and right positions no matter where they stand) o Begin to draw cognitive maps ; large-scale spaces and area. Requires CONSIDERABLE perspective-taking skill. What are some limitations of concrete operational thought? Children can only think in an organized, logical fashion. They cannot work with ABSTRACT ideas. o
