Montessori Primary Geography Checklist - every lesson you need to do for Homeschooling Montessori Geography

In the Montessori Method, Geography is grouped under the Montessori Cultural Curriculum which also includes botany, zoology, history, and science.

Geography itself isn’t limited to just physical geography – it’s cultural, environmental (where it meets up with botany and zoology) and also includes children’s first concepts of space.

Montessori Primary Geography Checklist

I want to start this post by assuring you that you really don’t need the entire set of Montessori Geography curriculum to reap the benefits of the Geography curriculum. In fact, I have the entire set of Montessori Geography curriculum and about half of it has never seen use beyond my own teachings/demonstrations.

If you’re debating where to spend your money, check out my Geography materials review and pick the materials that work best for you. I think a regular globe, some homemade continent boxes, and a good quality book that teaches children about other cultures (like this one) is all you really need to get started – everything else is bonus.
