I would like to share with you snapshots of our day in the Montessori classroom. Please forgive me for not including proper Montessori work photographs, like binomial cube or sound box activity. These are always there, and children continuously use them. In this particular post, I would like to share our new activities.
As part of our cultural study, we were talking about our state. On the news, we read that palaeontologists found dinosaur’s fossils in our region. Children were fascinated to learn how people discover bones and parts of dinosaurs and collect all the pieces together to get a whole picture. As an activity I set up a tub with sand, rocks and some pasta (for “bones”) with tools for kids to dig out pieces of “dinosaurs” put make a skeleton picture.
As an extension to this activity, I froze dinosaurs in water and children used hammer and nails to get those dinosaurs out. They enjoyed it so much as it was a great sensory activity as well. You should have seen their excitement when they got to get one of the dinosaurs out 🙂
