This download from Montessori Print Shop is a wonderful way to practice recognition and naming the continents. I printed out the black and white pages from the file and colored them in, by hand and followed the instructions to laminate and make the pinning flags.
Next day, I actually asked Lil Muallimah to help mak eher new activity.
First I asked her to place the flags on to a styrofoam sheet.
Next I asked her to make some balls with sticky tack
Then I asked her fix the balls of sticky tack onto the black dots on the continents, on the World map.
Finally she got to do her activity. Pin the correct flag on to the corresponding continent matching the color and shape.
Now the same activity with a twist. Matching the names of the continents
The control of error in Montessori Activities does give a boost to the child’s confidence. Love it 🙂
