We highlight the importance of presenting history in a concrete, hands-on manner, incorporating sensorial materials, stories, timelines, and maps. Our resources aim to spark curiosity, critical thinking, and a love for learning about the past.
Our blog posts will guide you through various Montessori history activities that encourage children to explore historical concepts through their natural inclination to touch, move, and manipulate objects.
From creating ancient artifacts and replicas to engaging in role-play and reenactments, we provide step-by-step instructions, tips, and materials lists to make your history lessons come alive.
Additionally, our category features reviews and recommendations for Montessori history resources, such as books, documentaries, websites, and apps, that are both educational and engaging.
We carefully select and evaluate these resources to ensure they align with Montessori principles and offer valuable learning experiences.
