Abstract In this paper the various transitions observed in children's behavior between 5 and 7 years of age are considered as resulting from a general transformation of central cognitive mechanisms. This transformation is characterized by a shift from partial to whole representations. It will be illustrated by means of experiments on construction of simple tools and on competences in intuitive physics as expressed through actions and judgements.
