Types of Mountains and Mountain Nomenclature Cards and Book

It's wonderful how Montessori encourages and incorporates nature throughout the entire environment. Whether in the form of a nature table, nature walks or the study of natural geography,  the children are continually exposed to the wonder and joy of our beautiful planet. 

Montessori Nomenclature is a fantastic tool that can be used
to help children gain a greater understanding of the natural environment that surrounds them.
