Was she Giving or Unloading?

Delivery Method: 

Jenna, a one-year-old girl, invites us to explore the beguiling ways of toddlers. Watch this clip and decide what intention to attribute to Jenna’s action. Would you say she is giving the cup to the infant? Getting rid of a cup she does not want to hold anymore? Seeing if the infant will toss it to the ground? Seeing if the infant will continue to hold the cup after it is passed to her? Pay particular attention to her utterances like, “Uh-oh”, her laughter, her body language, and the way she adjusts the placement of the cup before releasing it.
