A Girl Looking at a Pendulum Model

Grey Wolves

This age marks the pivotal point between childhood and puberty and the child is more able to understand questions and phenomena in a realistic and reasoning manner. A sense for time has developed: memory allows for looking back, and planning for the future. Deepening feelings acquiesce for the emergence of conscience and responsibility. Intellectually and morally, the child is ready for new challenges.
