Land, Water, Air and Water Cycle
Montessori activities help children have real experiences with the things they are learning about. With the activities and materials included in this Toolbox, you will be able to help your child understand land, water and air. The beautiful glass bottles and the poster with the classification cards can be used to clearly show the difference between all three. For the older children, they can learn about land and water forms, cloud formations, and the water cycle. Your child will love being able to take their cloud formation cards outside and identifying the different clouds in the sky.
We also include a easy to use kit to make your own tactile land and water formation cards so that your child can have a sensory experience of the difference between the land and the water forms.
Bee Transfer Activity, Montessori Turtle Puzzle, and Air Book
The cute bee transfer activity is designed to grow in complexity as your child’s fine motor skills strengthen. They can start by using their hands, then work their way up by using the strawberry huller, pom tongs, and finally, the bamboo tongs.
The Montessori Turtle puzzle is no ordinary puzzle, so don’t let its simplicity fool you! Montessori Puzzles are beautifully crafted and made of wood. In the right hands they can be a rich educational experience, because of their many uses and the variety of activities they provide.
“Air” is a beautifully illustrated picture book by Home Grown Books. It is a unique approach to reading that “pairs simple, supportive text with ideas and story lines that appeal to children’s natural curiosity.”
With the materials provided, your child can build their own fleet of cork boats! We provide instruction to make 4 different styles. Then, they can use the straw to blow the sails of the boats across the water or use the ribbon to pull them around.
They can also build their own balloon rocket and watch it zoom across the room!
