The Social Relationships and Moral Justice stage

 

Much like the Social and Imaginative stage (Years 6 to 9), this stage sees the child developing a stronger peer identity and need for social relationships. The child loves the independence that comes with being a part of a group outside of their family.

 

At this stage, the child's desire for justice also increases as their ethics and morals have become well-developed and they have a strong sense of right and wrong. Students in this stage of development love structure and rules and so should be involved in setting up rules for the classroom and home.
