Montessori Continents Printables (Activity 1)
We went to the home-school room after I had finished making the 3-part cards.
We have an outstanding area of Geography that we love.
It is full of hands on activities.
On the puzzle we passed over the landmass maps and named the mainlands (continents).
We have some rhyme that we use to name off the mainlands.
It causes us recall every one of them seven.
At that point, we got our inflatable globes and were finding and pointing at the various landmasses on them.
Preferably, make sure that the continents and oceans are as true to size and shape as possible.
Next on the lesson plan, I set out the main arrangement of the 3-part cards and we went over those names.
Then, I got the second arrangement of the 3-part cards and gave my daughter the pictures (since she is younger) and my son the names (since he is older).
At first, Sister would match one of her mainland pictures and afterward Brother would locate the coordinating name and set it underneath the picture that Sister had matched up.
They truly appreciated doing it a few times.
I was an observer, not by any means controlling, simply giving them a chance to do their exercise after I did the first Presentation of this work.
To get the formal presentation for 3-part cards, click here.
It is awesome that it is a self-check movement and it very well may be done independently or two by two (like for this situation).
7 Continents Printables (Activity 2)
This is a really fun and cool extension to the basic 3-part cards lesson.
I highly recommend it, especially if you want to be teaching continents to preschoolers.
We matched the continent cards with the puzzle map continents using the same set of our continents free printables!
Continents Names (Activity 3)
World Geography Continents (Activity 4)
Lastly, we want them to match up the continents on the puzzle map to the continent names (only nomenclature cards).
Now that they can recognize the shapes of the continents, they can actually use only the continent names with the puzzle.
