Get to the core of the matter – questions of history

Montessori upper elementary children spend a great deal of time looking at civilizations and the history which surrounds each.  We are always looking at what the civilization’s great gift to the world was.  We begin our quest by looking at a civilization.  I discuss one aspect of the civilization and how they answered one of the following questions.  If I’ve done my job well, the children then go off searching for answers to other questions.

In our project week, the children are creating their own civilizations and are expected to answer each of the questions and share their cultures with us.
