We are starting on Montessori Geography because I like it. I like the flow of it. Plus I got a free geography primary album from Living Montessori Now for signing up for her newsletter.
Geography is something we can all do together.
**Sorry about the pictures being a bit blurry.
First I had my 4 year old carry the tray to the living room.
We set it up with three jars - one with soil in it, one with water and one with air.
Then I had them go to the boys' room and find things that go on land or in air or on water.
Then they took it a step further. They put some beans (from the pouring activity) and put it in the soil and poured the water on it to see if they could get a plant to grow. I loved their idea.
I was thrilled they took the activity and did more with it than I had though of. They seemed to enjoy it.
