For this assignment you are to pick a developmental group and explain the physical social and cognitive changes that occur during that stage of development. And discuss the impact of cultural factors on the stage of development you have selected.  Below are some example search phrases for the adolescent stage.  You can change any search phrase to look for a different developmental group by taking out adolescent and putting in the group you are interested in.

Physical Cognitive Social

For information about physical, social, and cognitive changes in a certain developmental group, you may need to conduct more than one search.  For example:

adolescent child development physical

adolescent child development cognitive

adolescent child development social

To tighten up the search a bit, you could try group words together with quotation marks:  "child development" adolescent social

You could also try searching for all factors in one search phrase:  "child development" cognitive social physical adolescent

Cultural Factors

For cultural factors, you could search for "cultural factors" but, "sociocultural factors" seems to bring back better results.

A couple of searches you could try are:

"sociocultural factors" child development adolescent

"sociocultural factors" "child development" adolescent​
