This is where you can find all of our Multi-cultural Learning and Geography posts.
Montessori Geography encompasses culture, physical geography, history, and touches on other unique aspects of each individual geographic region, such as zoology (local animals) and botany (local plants).
While it can be easy to become overwhelmed at how many possible lessons or explorations exist within a Montessori Geography curriculum, I think what’s wonderful in that diversity is that you can find and focus on the aspects that appeal most to your child and engage them as a self-directed learner. You don’t need to teach your child about all 196 countries in the world! (Just make sure you eventually cover that there are 7 continents.)
Teaching geography also allows us to foster empathy, teach tolerance, and celebrate diversity.
We also have multi-cultural crafts, recipes, and book lists, and lots of hands-on learning about other cultures and physical geography.
