They are learning about the world through their own explorations of materials, observations of events, and imitations of others in their lives. Language becomes more and more a way that they are able to describe and analyze what they are learning. And as adults demon- strate for them ways to record information, they can begin to experiment with drawings, maps, charts, and graphs. But they will always need to have direct experience with what they are representing and have a friendly supportive teacher or parent to guide the way in any recording of information.
