Product Description
A Montessori unit plan of brief whole group lessons and preparation of materials and environment for individual study. Incorporates traditional Montessori geography materials, as well as additional artifacts and literature. This unit also incorporates a wide range of mediation techniques and TESA strategies that move struggling learners towards confidence and intrinsic motivation, as outlined in the book, "What is it About Me You Can't Teach?", by Rodriguez and Bellanca.

Abstract

This unit plan for the Kindergarten/Pre-K Montessori Primary or Lower Elementary classroom introduces the child to the seven continents. The children will learn to interpret a globe and two dimensional map, locate and name each of the seven continents, create their own continent maps, and explore key characteristics of the landscapes, climates, fauna, cultures, literature, and landmarks of each of the continents. This cross-curricular unit will incorporate artistic, geographical, cultural, zoological, and literary aspects of each of the seven continents as the children learn about and expand their understanding of the world through brief whole-group lessons and through individual interactions with prepared activities. The unit will culminate when the children review the basic needs of all humans, no matter where they live, and plan a service project to assist a family in need on another continent.


I developed this unit plan as part of my graduate course work and received extremely positive feedback from the Doctorate-level professor that reviewed my work.
