Montessori Gift Ideas for Elementary
What's Inside Animals? x-ray cards are perfect for botany and zoology learning but you know what else? These x-rays are cool and kids will be drawn to them. Use these images with a light table or tape them up to a window. Compare and contrast vertebrates. Sort and match with younger children. Go a bit deeper with older, elementary aged children.
I am definitely channelling my inner desire to be a student again with this gem of a gift for Montessori elementary, a Fossil Collection. Timeline of Life is a big deal at the elementary level in Montessori Children spend their time immersed in The Great Lessons. The Timeline of Life is the Second Great Lesson. This collection delivers 18 fossils and cards. It also comes with a mini timeline and ideas for further learning. If anyone wants to get this collection for me for Christmas, I welcome it. Kidding, of course. If fossils are not your thing, then check out this rock collection.
I had these amazing Colored Pencils listed for Early Childhood, too. These colored pencils are that awesome and so worth it no matter the age of the person (even adults!). These Colored Pencils are still ridiculously marked down on Amazon.
Tree of Life: The Incredible Biodiversity of Life on Earth (CitizenKid) is also within the realm of life sciences. I adore this book so much, however, found it a bit too “old” for my 5 and 3 year old. This book and its gorgeous layout is perfect for elementary aged children. Trust me. They will take this book and run with it!
Safari Evolution of Man figurines can be used with Timeline of the Human work. Even with their newly capable abstract thinking minds, elementary ages kids like figurines, too! These figurines are well made and full of detail.
So happy to have you here today. I hope you enjoyed these Montessori Gift Ideas! Peace, Love, & Joy to you and your family.
