Yesterday, I shared a lot of activities that you can do with maps. Today I want to share some other geography activities that my kids loved.
After reading through Me on the Map (which is just perfect for the 4-6 year old crowd), I had ED do an activity that focuses in on where we live. You have the kids color in and paste their location, pinpointing their location by going from the largest to the smallest location. For example… I printed out labels such as I live on Earth, I live in North America…
I cut out circles for
- the Earth
- North America
- Your state: Kansas
- City: Topeka
- Street: 77 Maple Street
If you want to print out and make your own Montessori materials, here are the posts where you’ll find those free downloads…
You’ll find the free Montessori World Map here and instructions on how to make a Montessori pin map:
You might want to visit the post about the Animals Around the World. You can access free Montessori cards of animals from each continent at that post:
Don’t miss this post about using the free Montessori US landmark cards I made (Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty, etc.) and how we used them.
