Elementary Discussion Questions
A range of Discussion questions to help apply, review, critique and analyse student knowledge. Let’s ensure our children are global, peaceful, knowledgeable citizens by ensuring they have opportunities to gain these qualities in our Montessori 6-12 classrooms!
HOW TO USE
The ideas can be used during whole class group or circle time in Lower Elementary Montessori or Upper Elementary Montessori or as journal ideas for students to write about, for example you could write a journal idea on the whiteboard for children to write about. There is no shelf work included
As Montessori classes are different and located around the world in many cultures there may be questions that are not suited for you. I do hope though that there is plenty of ‘food for thought’ in here and these ideas may help you generate your own questions and discussion topics
16 pages - at least 10 questions for each topic listed below!
