b'ScienceThrough sensorial exploration, the young childs powerful absorbent mind soaks up information about everything in the environment. With the acquisition of language, the child begins to label the world with words. Hands-on experiences prepare the way for the child to internalize concepts. The Montessori classroom provides activities to guide the child in making connections.

Discovering relationships between things, not learning isolated details, guides the child to a thorough and thoughtful understanding of science and the world.Classifying the WorldNatural WorldClassification CardsThree-Part Photo Cards Working with these popular card packets helps children find order in their world.
