he cosmic vision of Montessori was for children to have an education that showed them how things interact, the cosmic task of all things in it and to connect the learner to that cosmic task.

 

In this resource I have taken the traditional functional geography charts and weaved in a variety of curriculum areas such as language, arts ,and social studies. There are a huge variety of activities in here to encourage open ended exploration and to act as jumping off points for students to do their own study.

 

This is part of the geographic impressionistic chart growing bundle and the Cosmic and Whole Store Bundle

 

I have tried hard to decolonise the traditional Montessori lessons and acknowledge that I still have work to do in this area.

 

Includes

- Charts and scripts for

  • Position of Earth to Sun. There are two hemispheres. Whatever hemisphere is tilted towards the sun gets more sunlight. Areas of Earth that get vertical rays are hotter. The Sun’s rays strike the Earth at different angles dependent on the latitude. Certain areas of the Earth receive more heat and energy from the Sun than others.
  • Distribution of Heat. There are five different climate zones. Some areas get more direct rays than other parts.
  • Astronomical Seasons. Earth experiences different seasons. One way the seasons can be measured is by the location of an area of Earth as it rotates around the Sun.
  • Solstice and Equinox. One way of telling the seasons are the solstice and equinox.
