Conclusion

Piaget claims that before the beginning of this stage, children\'s ideas about different objects, are formed and dominated by the appearance of the object.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

A good essay that has scope for development. The first half covers areas of development and shows some research.

It provides a good starting point on which to build a good essay from.
