The 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.

 

This can also be bought as part of the Geographic Impressionistic Chart Bundle or the Cosmic Bundle

 

In this resource I have taken the traditional functional geography charts and weaved in a variety of curriculum areas. 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.

 

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

  • Solar energy is life giving. The sun is very hot. The heat from the sun reaches Earth at a ‘just right’ temperature to enable there to be living things.
