This is a series of presentations and activities that are designed to introduce students to Cognitive Development.  I have had success doing one of these every now and then as part of a history class.  Also, I have taught units on Child Development and Education where I used them all within the context of the same unit.  I like the spreading of these lessons throughtout the year in a high school setting, where students can sort of see it as a continuing series of interesting topics that break up the normal flow of learning.
