    During this age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage, the infant begins to develop reasoning and can anticipate events.

    Correct Answer(s)
    18-24 months
    Explanation
    During the age of 18-24 months, infants enter Piaget's sensorimotor stage. In this stage, they start to develop reasoning abilities and can anticipate events. This means that they are able to think about and predict what might happen next in their environment. They are also able to use their senses and motor skills to explore and interact with the world around them. This is an important milestone in cognitive development as it shows the infant's growing ability to understand and make sense of their surroundings.

  • 26. 

    During this age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage the infant relates their own behavior to a change in the environment, such as shaking a rattle to hear the sound or manipulation.

    Correct Answer(s)
    4-8 months
    Explanation
    During the age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage, which occurs between 4-8 months, infants begin to understand cause and effect relationships. They start to relate their own actions, such as shaking a rattle, to the changes they observe in the environment, such as hearing the sound it makes. This is an important milestone in their cognitive development as they learn to actively manipulate objects and explore the consequences of their actions.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    During this age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage, the infant demonstrates basic reflexes such as sucking.

    Correct Answer(s)
    0-1 month
    Explanation
    During the first month of Piaget's sensorimotor stage, infants exhibit basic reflexes such as sucking. This is because their motor skills are limited to involuntary movements and automatic reflexes. As they explore and interact with their environment, they learn to coordinate these reflexes and gradually develop more intentional actions. This stage is crucial for the infant's cognitive and physical development as they begin to understand cause and effect relationships and start to make sense of the world around them.

  • 28. 

    During this age of  Piagets sensorimotor stage the infant recognizes permanance of objects even out of site and can understand simple commands.

    Correct Answer(s)
    12-18 months
    Explanation
    During the age of 12-18 months, according to Piaget's sensorimotor stage, infants develop object permanence, which means they understand that objects continue to exist even when they are out of sight. They also start to comprehend and follow simple commands. This stage marks an important milestone in cognitive development as infants begin to grasp the concept of object permanence and demonstrate improved understanding of their surroundings.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    During this age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage the infant coordinates more than one thought pattern at a time to reach a goal, such as repeatedly throwing an object on the floor, and only objects in sight are permanent.

    Correct Answer(s)
    8-12 months
    Explanation
    During the age of 8-12 months, according to Piaget's sensorimotor stage, infants start to coordinate multiple thought patterns simultaneously to achieve a goal. For example, they may repeatedly throw an object on the floor to observe the cause and effect relationship. At this stage, infants also develop object permanence, which means they understand that objects continue to exist even when they are out of sight.

    During this age of Piaget's sensorimotor stage the infant discovers enjoyment of random behaviors and repeats them(smiling or sucking thumb)

    Correct Answer(s)
    1-4 months
    Explanation
    During Piaget's sensorimotor stage, which occurs from birth to around 2 years old, infants explore the world through their senses and motor activities. In the first few months, typically between 1-4 months, infants start to discover pleasure in random behaviors and often repeat them. This can include actions like smiling or sucking their thumb, which they find enjoyable. This behavior is a sign of their developing cognitive abilities and sensory-motor coordination during this stage.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    What is the first stage called Piaget's development and what is the age range?

    Correct Answer(s)
    sensorimotor stage 0-24 months
    Explanation
    The first stage in Piaget's development is called the sensorimotor stage, which occurs from birth to around 24 months of age. During this stage, infants explore and understand the world through their senses and motor actions. They develop object permanence, the ability to understand that objects continue to exist even when they are out of sight. This stage is characterized by rapid cognitive and physical development as infants learn to coordinate their sensory experiences with their motor actions.
