Children learn from watching and copying. Neuroscientists assert that children learn skills through two main strategies: practice (trial and error) and observation (imitation). Learning through observation and imitation is made possible by an action observation/execution matching system, or mirror neuron system which is a neurophysiological mechanism (Blakemore, Winston & Frith, 2004; Rizzolatti & Craighero, 2004).
