With all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. When learning geography, students first develop an understanding that the earth is a globe, and that it is made up of land and water. They then feel the textured shape of each continent before addressing its name and location. Montessori: Map Work will introduce your child to the seven continents, modes of transportation between each one for spatial context, and illustrated native animals for relevant and meaningful associations. Your young child will absorb the age-appropriate geography and gain a better sense of their place in the world.
