Sample text

Children form all kinds of relationships based on their experiences—numeric, similar/different/same/opposite, more/less/same, symmetrical/asymmetrical, difficult/easy, and so forth. All of this knowledge resides inside the child rather than within the properties of objects or experiences. For example, there is nothing about a truck and a car that makes them similar until an individual decides they are closely related, perhaps because both have wheels and are used for transportation. Another person might determine that the same two objects are different because the truck is larger and is used to carry cargo.

She expects that children will explore the similarities and differences among the pinecones and also begin to measure them. When Anna interacts with the pinecones, Ms. Ortega notices that Anna groups the large pinecones together and moves the smaller pinecones into a different pile. Building on Anna’s interest in size comparison, the teacher helps her use direct comparison to put six of the pinecones in order based on their length.
