Geography & History

Montessori Geography and History

Montessori system of education is a great hope for peace. Maria Montessori wished to guide us on a journey toward justice and harmony with the child leading the way.
The Montessori Geography and History curriculum emphasizes cultural studies, introducing children to different cultures from around the world.
Through hands-on activities and sensorial experiences, children develop a deep appreciation for the wonders of the Earth, animals, and the diverse cultures that inhabit it.
By the age 3-6, children are in their second stage of adaptation where they search for a sense of belonging. Since the child identifies very strongly with his/her own family, the study of history begins there, with the pictures of the child’s family generations.
It is important to aid the child in the ability to deal with changes by looking at the seasons, the weather, and to recognize the changes within his/her own body and see his/her growth. By learning about history and recognizing the significance of different traditions, children are able to deal with change, and recognize how they are a part of history themselves.

Wooden Magnetic Daily Calendar

What is today? For a child, that simple question can have so many answers--and this daily calendar helps satisfy them all!

Kids will feel a greater sense of control and responsibility when they help post the day of the week, date, weather, and special events on the large magnetic board for all to see.

There's even a space to post their mood--an excellent way to open communication and encourage children to gauge their own emotions.

Updating the information is simple: Simply take a preprinted magnet from the lower magnetic board (which hangs below the calendar to keep magnets within easy reach). Then place it on the calendar to fill in the information . . . or make a custom magnet by writing on one of two dry-erase magnet tiles!
