After our trip to the Wicklow Mountains last month, he’s been asking if we could learn about rocks and minerals. He plays Minecraft so he wanted to understand the building blocks he’s using.

Here are our classified cards for our rock collection: SCRIBD (and more in a second file here) or you can click on the images in this post. I got the images from sites that were selling these rocks. If they complain, then I’ll have to take them down. Also, I made some cheat sheets that describe our collection and divide them into rocks vs minerals, type of rock, type of minerals, and which ones aren’t really their own mineral anyway and are just another version of one mineral….etc.

12 months of montessori learning

The kids LOVE learning all about other countries and the different parts of the world. As part of our Pack Your Bags geography curriculum, I have added a few additional Montessori printables to add a little variety to our weekly lessons.

Instead of focussing on just the Country we are studying in the Pack Your Bags curriculum, we are focusing on the continent, the oceans and/or seas closest to that country.

I have found fantastic resources online that we will be using throughout the year, and in the future.
