CULTURE

“Our work is not to teach, but to help the absorbent mind in its work of development. How marvelous it would be if by our help, if by an intelligent treatment of the child, if by understanding the needs of his physical life and by feeding his intellect, we could prolong the period of functioning of the absorbent mind!” - Maria Montessori.
Childhood is the time to plant seeds which will blossom later. By allowing the child to explore with his/her senses rather than merely reading a textbook an empirical attitude is fostered. The child should be encouraged to prove things for him/herself. An important tool in developing this empirical attitude is observation. In presenting the child with opportunities to really see and listen, his/her powers of observation are improved. Further, through involvement with nature with both mind and body, the child’s ability to concentrate grows. Exploration with living things then helps to train the child’s senses and enables him/her to perceive more precisely.
Throughout the cultural area, the adult wonders with the child, guiding the child to his/her own discoveries. The key is that we experience together with the child instead of telling the child what to experience. Discovery is what it is all about!

Life Cycle of a Spider

A female spider can lay up to 3,000 eggs. Many species then protect the eggs in a silk sac, which is then attached to the web so the mother can protect them. Once the eggs hatch, spider lings emerge, resembling smaller versions of adults. They eventually leave the web to grow into adult spiders and repeat the process.

Scientific Name: Order Araneae. There are over 45,000 species of spider in the order Araneae. Though they have a reputation for being dangerous, only few species of spiders pose a threat with their venomous bite. While they are commonly regarded as pests, spiders actually aid in controlling other common pests – they eat flies, centipedes, cockroaches, fleas and other undesirable bugs.

Life Cycle Of A Salmon

Salmon undergo a long journey during their life, hatching from eggs in freshwater streams, growing up into adult fish, and then swimming out to the ocean to live most of their lives in salt water.

  • Scientific Name: Family Salmonidae, subfamily Salmoninae
  • Characteristics: This set includes 5 figurines detailing the fascinating lifestyle of a salmon, from the egg all the way up to the adult fish. This set provides a fun, tactile way to learn about the life stages of these unique and important fish.

The adult worm featured in the set measures 3 ½ inches long.

Non-toxic and BPA free.
