On Monday, I published a post about Montessori-inspired winter activities involving snow, ice, snowmen, cold weather, and animals in winter. Of course, winter is also a great time to study the Arctic and Antarctica. And an Arctic/Antarctic unit works very well for multi-level learning. Here’s a link to continent map work to help your child identify continents before you start the unit.
Here are some wonderful Montessori-inspired resources for an Arctic/Antarctic unit:
Montessori Continent Boxes (my post). This would be a great time to start an Antarctica continent box. You could also focus on Arctic items for your North America box.
Parts of the Penguin, ages 3 to 6 from Montessori Helper. (This is part of Montessori Helper’s Free in February promotion. If you register during February, you’ll receive that and 25 other zoology materials worth $100 free!)
