Free Montessori 3-Part Cards: Famous Rocks Around the World

Here’s another freebie from our Rocks and Minerals Unit.  Hope you find these helpful. 🙂 Have a great day! ~Liesl

Famous Rocks Around the World-Montessori-3-Part-Cards

FamousRocks-MontessoriCards

So this is how we used it these cards…

My oldest just matched the names and then went off and filled out the blank pages from the Rocks and Mineral Packet (I think it was pages 5 and 6).

February 20139

DD (in the brown below) matched the cards herself and then used them to help her write the names onto her science notebook pages (from the Rocks and Minerals packet).

ED needed the most help.  I helped her read the names and then described each rock (it has 4 presidents… it is an ancient calendar set up in a grassy field). Then ED matched the labels to the 3-part cards and glued them on her notebook pages.

If you are interested in catching up on some of our other activities, you might want to check out the Homeschool Den Facebook Page. I post a quick synopsis of each post so it’s an easy way to browse through things you may have missed. I share a lot of the materials I make for the kids — everything from science and history sheets and packets to some generic grammar worksheets.  They’re all free.
