The more I do it , the more I love Montessori method. The fixed colors of continents make things so much simpler and understandable for young minds.
I found these FREE Continent Nomenclatures cards (in Montessori colors) at the Helpful Garden. I almost jumped out of my seat, because I just happened to find these just as I was thinking of making them by myself.
I also found another free one here at Montessori helper.
ETC has excellent ones too, but I prefer them for once the Continent recognition has been strengthened. These are like real pictures of Earth.
Well back to our activity…… I cut and pasted our cards as soon as I had the printouts in my hand. Once done Lil Muallimah did this…..She used her big map for reference, Mashallah!
Next we played a few games of Twister as posted in my last post and then we did these extensions…
