Land and Water
The Montessori Geography curriculum includes the study of landforms, parts of a flag, maps, and astronomy. Children will grow up with the incredible confidence to walk out into the world and encounter the diversity of human kind and have the familiarity with multiple cultures and to not be intimidated by the world, but to discover and rediscover the world! They will carry forever the sensitivity of these sensorial experiences at many levels. They will think of a country with images of forests or valleys or waterfalls. When they hear the name of a country they will subconsciously move their feet in a dance or hear the sounds of music and want to sing, when they see an instrument they will remember holding it and discovering its sounds, or remember the smell or flavor of a food! That will be their source of comfort, strength, inspiration and confidence to encounter new unknown worlds!
