Assignment 5 requirement
1) Please design three activities that you would use or engage in, in order to describe three aspects of Piaget’s theory to your fellow classmates. That is, these activities will be meant for adults, not children. The activities could be skits, videos, drawings, or anything else that you can think of. Please note that if you choose a video, you will actually have to create one, it will not be enough to just describe it. If you choose a comic strip, you will actually have to design/develop/draw it, it will not be enough to just describe it. The more creative this activity is, and the more detail you include in your description of the activity, the better (6 points).
