Looking at Leaves

We had some excited children make a discovery whilst observing leaves in the garden. The children noticed that two leaves connected to the petiole from underneath. These children had discovered something completely for themselves, and were showing intense interest in learning more. They couldn't agree on the shape of the leaves so I suggested that perhaps there were some materials that might help with that. I had some laminated leaves from last autumn in the cupboard that I got out for them…

Zoology Roundup

I haven't really posted much on the subject of Zoology so I thought I could remedy that with a round-up post. Initial elementary work will overlap with work done in the Casa, but as the child is entering the second plane of development they are moving from the sensorial to the intellectual, capturing their imagination and sense of awe - building and expanding upon the child's experiences.

Free Botany Materials

The focus of this round-up is to collate as many free materials from around the web to aid the study of botany at the Montessori elementary level. As with most of the work in Montessori we look at our studies in a broad view before examining aspects and concepts more closely. The botany materials consist of folders (pictures, labels and definitions), control books and wall charts and examples of the real thing where ever possible. Some of these pintable's are aimed at the casa level but are…

Botany & Classifying

This post has been sitting in my draft box for some time waiting to be finished. I was prompted by my friends request for a plant classification chart (she's just getting started on her home-school journey). In addition to the impressionistic botany charts, there is also the plant kingdom chart. This way of classifying plants comes after the types and parts of plants (or when the child shows readiness) and can lead into extended discussion of plants and the amazing work that they do. I have…

Montessori Botany Primary Parts of Cards - Update!!!

During my new training this summer I learned so much, and have had to adjust my thinking and approach in some ways as I have been stretched. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to become a better educator and guide for my children. As a result of the training I have learned more about the Parts of Cards. My lovely and VERY knowledgable queen of a trainer, Teresa, spoke about why it is important for primary Montessori classes (3-6 years) to have the isolation of the difficulty in…

Mammalian Orders

I love classification work! It is so much fun, I think because language and etymology really come into play and it can be one way of engaging students with some lively discussion. This set of mammal cards serve as an introduction to the main orders within the class mammalia. There is a picture card and information/description card for the orders covered (18). They have been colour coded as these are the first in a series of resources, as I hope to cover each of the classes. Flexibility is…
