FREE Montessori World Pin Map Printable

While my older kids were learning a lot about the location of the specific countries of Africa, my preschooler was working on world geography again.  I thought I’d share some of the activities ED has been doing the past week or two.

Montessori Style World Map Free Printable

As always, we started out by singing the continent song. It’s to the tune of Frère Jacques:

Click here to hear the kids sing this the Seven Continents Song on You Tube and to see what we do with the pin map.



While we sing the song, the kids always point to the continents on a Montessori world map. (What makes it Montessori is the specific colors used for each continent.)

Free Montessori World Pin Map PrintableI made this pin map years ago and we have used it so, so much!! But when I went to link to the website where I got our map, the link no longer worked. 🙁  So… it’s not perfect, but I made a Montessori world map that you can download for free.

There are two to choose from… one has country borders, the other doesn’t. Also I included the continent song so you can print it out if you want it.

As we talked about the 7 continents, we did a study of the World Animals. As we sang our song about the 7-continents, the kids would put down animal cards on each of the continents:
