If you’re looking for a way to help your child love geography, don’t forget about Montessori continent boxes … or bags, baskets, folders, or trays. Continent materials aren’t always displayed in boxes. They’re often displayed on a table, shelf, basket, or tray. But however they’re displayed, the hands-on activities from Montessori continent work are perfect for bringing geography to life for young children.
