Even though Geography and Culture are talked about in Montessori literature, the subject is not the most important focus in the Montessori classroom, however, I absolutely love geography and culture in the classroom! It is so important for children to understand that the world is much bigger than the few city blocks they are familiar with. We've been learning the continents and the animals of each place. They absolutely love this unit and have easily taken in all the information. We also have a book about each continent they can look through and they have loved seeing the flags of different countries, what the children dress like and the kinds of foods people eat in other parts of the world. I so enjoy their enthusiasm for the world around them!
