Suggested Responses: Students should explain that toddlers can sustain attention significantly longer than infants and that they are better able to focus on the relevant aspects of objects or events. Students should suggest that adults use Vygotsky's scaffolding approach to guide toddlers' attention. Adults should ask questions or make comments warmly and enthusiastically to help their toddlers focus on a toy or game when needed, but should not overly direct them. Students should describe a play environment that includes a variety of exciting, engaging objects which are placed in such a way that they are clearly visible to young children.
