  3. the second sensorimotor substage. the infant coordinates sensation and two types of schemes

  6. 4th sensorimotor stage. the infant coordinated vision and touch. coordination of schemes and intentionality
    coordination of secondary reactions
  7. 5th sensorimotor substage. infants become intrigued by the many properties of objects and by the many things that they can make happen to objects. schemes in which the infant purposely explores new possibilities with objects
