One of my favorite things about teaching the 3 - 6 age group using Montessori philosophy is the heavy focus on cultural studies, including geography.
We want children to understand not only that they live on a planet called Earth but also that humans are just one piece of a complex web of life.
Teaching them the names of the continents will open up their eyes to the entire world they live in. The new awareness will lead to questions about different climates, landforms, animals, and cultures.

Share your love for our planet Earth daily and act very interested in inspecting your map; your child will catch Continent Fever before you know it.
