Objective:
            To seek differences in cognitive development of children between
            the ages of 6 and 12.View differences in responses to verbal questions
            and visual pictures.
 
Hypothesis:
            There is an increase in elaborate answers as the children age because of
            exposure to higher education and the world around them.
 
Cautions:
             The structuring of questions may contribute to answers. Make sure to
             have parent permission.
 
Materials:
              6, 8, 10, and 12 years old children
              3 broad verbal questions
              3 pictures without people
              3 pictures with people
              ink blot
              3 nature (neutral) pictures
 
Procedures:
            Individually gather information from the 6, 8, 10, 12 child. First ask the 3 
            verbal questions. Ask "What do you see in this picture?" when showing
            the 12 pictures. Order does not matter, but my order is as follows : 3
            pictures without people, 3 pictures with people, 3 nature (neutral
            pictures).
