I’m thrilled to be sharing with you some amazing Montessori nature printables during their special sale at 67% off! My friends, Yuliya from Welcome to Mommyhood and Katherine from I Believe in Montessori have an awesome Nature Printable Library that’s on sale only until this Thursday, August 16! And I was able to review some of the materials for you, too!
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). I was given the Animals of the Continents Circle, Various Plants of the Continents Circle, Trees of the Continents Circle, and Shrubs and Bushes of the Continents Circle along with the bundle’s bonuses. My opinions are honest and my own.
Animals and Plants of the Continents Circles – Review
This is a big work, and I think is perfect for collaboration. It would be great work for a group in a school. In a homeschool, it’s perfect for siblings who are able to work together on a project like this. Otherwise, the adult can do the work together with the child. That’s what I did in this activity with Zoey, my 4½-year-old granddaughter.
Zoey and I had previously worked quite a bit on a variety of plant and animal activities. We studied animals of the continents in a number of different ways. So I prepared a big project that would allow Zoey to both review and further her understanding of animals and plants around the world.
I prepared the activities in the easiest way possible. I often do that for homeschooling. While I always laminated printables as a Montessori teacher, I only laminate materials as a homeschooler for toddlers (who need the materials to be extra strong) and materials I know will be used very often. So I just needed to print out and cut out the materials. I placed them in groups on a Multicraft tray and added our Montessori continents globe as way to integrate our previous continents work.
Note: For a school or for younger children, it’s important to add colored control dots to the back of each card or another control of error for children to check their work. We just used the names on the control cards as the check.
There are 10 animals for each continent, which creates a huge layout on the floor that’s very appealing to young children. The cards have high-quality images, and the whole activity is very aesthetically appealing.
Note: This material is very adaptable. For younger children, you could just introduce 2-4 of the animal cards for each continent. You could also add Safari Ltd. TOOB figures to match the animal cards. You can find out which TOOBS have which animals (and get free TOOB keys) here.
After completing the animals of the continents circle, we worked with the plants of the continents. To make this a very big work, I put three printables together for the activity: Various Plants of the Continents Circle, Trees of the Continents Circle, and Shrubs and Bushes of the Continents Circle. Of course, you would normally do these individually, at least at first.
There are five of each type of card per continent (except Antarctica, which only has 3 types of plants). This was an especially big layout, and it almost didn’t fit on our floor! It was very interesting to see the variety of plants from each continent. Of course, I learned some new facts, too!
The continent circle printables are simply amazing!
Animals for the Continents Map is just another of the fabulous printables from the “Nature Printables Library”
