I love how Montessori encourages using hands-on materials for learning. Geography material can be abstract for a child, but it doesn't have to be! For this concrete activity here children are learning all about animals and continents.

How to adapt:

Depending on the age of your child you can adapt this to add the following for them to place on the map

  • Trees/Rain forest

  • Sand/Desert

  • Ice/Arctic and Antarctica
