I think much of the maturation is shown in chapter 3. Chapters one and two give us the exposition or introductory background. Jem and more particularily Scout, begin to see the people behind the kids and adults they know. The socio-economic inadequacies between people come into sharper focus even within Maycomb. Scout discovers, through a harsh scolding by Calpurnia, that Walter Cunningham is a guest and what it means to be a host. Scout sees the differences between larger towns and Maycomb through her dealings with Miss. Caroline. I think Scout is also beginning to feel the injustice in tormenting Boo but has not yet understood the full significance of it.
