Map work

So what do you need so that the children can absorb maps? Well.... you need the Montessori map puzzle, a labeled control chart and a good reader!

This week Little-N and his new best friend have been working everyday on the puzzle maps. They find a puzzle piece they want to know, find it on the atlas and read out the name. Its amazing that they don't even need me there and they're learning. Sometimes I may choose a few countries and do the three period lesson to teach the names, however it doesn't look like I will need to do that anymore as once a child reads they teach themselves so much without my guidance.
