Infants and Toddlers Sensory/Perception Project

CHD 166 Infants and Toddlers

Sensory/Perception Project


You will be creating a Sensory/Perception PowerPoint/Prezi or taped Oral Presentation to illustrate how the following items contribute to the sensory development and perceptual abilities of infants and toddlers. For each item listed below, you will locate a picture of the item (each picture must be on a separate slide) or in the case of an Oral Presentation, you will show the actual item.

You will describe how an infant and toddler would work with each item (hint: it will not be the same because of brain growth in the first two years of life) and then use the Milestones of Child Development to provide evidence on which domain (cognitive, physical, social/emotional, language, fine arts) the item stimulates and how it is beneficial to both an infant and a toddler.

For example: baby blanket or quilt

An infant might use this to comfort and self-soothe.

This correlates to the social/emotional domain in Milestones of Child Development, Strand 3: Expression of Feelings and Self-regulation: C1. Develop early emotional and behavioral regulation.

A toddler may pretend it is a superhero cape.

This correlates to the fine arts domain in Milestones of Child Development, Strand 3: Theater Arts: C6. Engage in pretend play.

Your Presentation MUST be neat, orderly, and of professional quality (be sure to proof for spelling, grammar, and mechanics). This project is worth 15 points and must be submitted via Blackboard NO LATER than 11:59 PM on the assigned due date.
