The purpose of this assignment is to creatively demonstrate an understanding of infant developmental milestones as they pertain to cognition, motor skills, sensation, and perception. Using information from Chapter 5 of your text, write a short story about a child’s journey from birth to age 1. This can be a fictional child, or can be based on a real child. The story should be three to five pages in addition to the title page and the reference page. Use at least one reference in addition to your text. Your paper should also be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. a. Describe the child’s sensory experiences at birth (e.g. sight, hearing, movement). b. Analyze how these senses develop and become more evolved? At the age of 6 months, identify what this same child can hear, see, and do? c. Describe what a day in this child’s life might look like by age 1. Include pictures in your Word document or compose your story using Storybird. Watch the video, Storybird Quick Tour, for assistance. If you choose to create your story in Storybird, you may collaborate with a partner in class by using the collaboration tool. Make sure to notify your instructor of your collaboration and make sure both of you submit your Storybird link in a Word document for grading.
