I know this sounds so simple but could someone explain cognitive skills in simple terms to me. My mind is drawing a complete blank. We have a section in our lesson plan that says list at least one activity, material, oor experience that will meet each of the following areas of development and content: One of those areas is cognitive and it can be something in our lesson plan and I never know what to put for cognitive. Can someone help explain? Also I was wondering if anyone can send me some resources. On another part of the lesson plan there's an objective for the week i can write out and a method to achieve that objective... sometimes i have a hard time thinking for the second one.. can anyone send me some resources? I know I don't always make the most sense in my original post so if you need to explain more just let me know.
