Piagetian Tasks

Over the weekend, I performed some Piagetian tasks with my children, ages 3 and (almost) 7, to see where they were in relation to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. I did one egocentric perspective task, three conservation tasks, and one classification task. While I made some mistakes (asking questions incorrectly, for example), the tasks went very well and really demonstrate the differences in cognitive skills for each child.
