using their cognitive skills, furthermore, it helps develop the child’s problem-solving skills. Part 3 The primary purpose of my plan in terms of the activity of “Picture Card Matching” is to develop and increase the mental abilities of a child within the age of 3 -8 years old. The reason behind this being that the child’s development correlates to the child’s cognitive development. “Cognitive skill development in children involves the progressive building of learning skills, such as attention, memory and thinking.” Thus, we see that through the development of cognitive development the child is able to develop more as a whole.

In terms of the child’s attention, it will grab hold of the child’s attention by way of not only the big and colorful cards but also the fact that in order to win you would have to pay attention. This activity grabs the attention also due to the fact that the cards are either constantly moved or being flipped over which will make the child focus on what is going on within the game. Likewise, in regard to the cognitive ability of a child and his memory, based off of the cards constantly being shuffled or flipped it will make the child memorize which card is where. That through this activity the child increases his memory and attention span. Lastly, in terms of the child’s problem-solving ability it will increase and develop by way of the child learning how to overcome their frustration and ability to solve the problem of which card is where through the utilization of their other cognitive abilities. Furthermore, my activity plan will focus on the child’s cognitive ability by way of the child being within the “Preoperational Stage” of cognitive development which is ages 2 through
