Group 8 Activity #3 for Module #4 DFEC 1013- Section 20 October 4, 2006 Amanda Briscoe, Erin Gray, Venus Hailu, Josh Hurlburt, Heather Macdonald, Ashley Wade, Marli Yarbrough Game Playing Piaget's sensorimotor stage begins in infancy and concludes at two years, there are six sub-stages of the sensorimotor period. The sub-stages begin first with reflex activities from birth to 1 month, such as sucking, blinking, spontaneous arm waving and kicking legs, and other survival reflexes. The infant in the first subset of the sensorimotor stage would merely be able to adapt its sucking reflexes to the different murder weapons used in the game Clue . In the primary circular reactions from 1 to 4 months of age, the infant's attention would be more focused on the ability to kick and blow bubbles than any outside stimulus. While in the primary circular reaction stage the infant would have no interest in playing a game and would find little amusement from the stimulation the game may provide. The third stage ranges from 4 to 8 months and is the secondary circular reaction stage; the infant would be more interested in the game pieces and weapons. In this stage the infant would repeatedly bang, slam, and shake the objects to receive a desired effect. The next subset of sensorimotor stage consists of the coordination of secondary schemes which allows the infant to move aside the game board in order to grasp for a desired game piece. The fourth subset begins at 8 months and ends at 12 months; the development allows the infant to combine multiple actions in order to receive a desired reaction. During this stage the infant will also understand object permanence and will be able to find a game piece that had fallen under the game table. The fifth stage is tertiary circular reactions which range from 12 to 18 months; in this subset of sensorimotor stage the infant will explore each murder weapon in order to examine the components or each weapon. Exploration would include hitting, pinching, and slapping in order to see what will happen. The final stage of the sensorimotor stage is the beginning of thought, the infant will be able to problem solve, begin symbolic play, and imitate the other people that are playing the game. The infant in this sub stage will be interested in playing with the candlestick and using it as a phone, and pretend play with all the pieces of the game. Everyone loves a good mystery! From movies to puzzles to games, people of all ages get lost in the unlimited excitement. Children are easily enthralled in movies, puzzles, and games. One game in particular which catches the fancy of most younger children is Clue ; a game where the child is prompted to use his or her imagination in order to solve an immaculate mystery of deception and murder. Although there is much deception throughout the game, the most present deception is that of the child in his or herself due to the Preoperations stage which takes place in young children from around the age of two until they reach about six. During this stage a child is not cognitively
