The study of geography begins in the class with the use of large puzzle maps and simple globes. Dr. Montessori emphasized the study of geography because it is a subject area important to everyday life. Older students continue their study of geography through independent projects on peoples, countries and cultures.
The study of history begins with personal time-lines and continues through time-lines of the development of the earth, man and civilizations, as well as other particular subject such as transportation, inventions, musicians and artistic periods. All students undertake the history of Canada. A global approach is taken in the study of cultural subject, so a country or an area is studied in its entirety.
