Geography & Culture
Children in a Montessori primary classroom learn about geography through the use of puzzle maps, globes and cultural events. Children will often become interested in making their own maps. We are able to look at realistic and beautiful pictures of people, places and animals from all over the world. Animals are studied in relationship to the basic classifications (mammals, reptiles, fishes, invertebrates, amphibians and birds) their environment and geographical location. Children can choose to work with land and water forms that show the relationships between land & water structures such as an island or a lake.
