Here are the contents of our North America unit studies box. You can read more about how we store our unit studies supplies here.
Of course, it would be VERY un-Montessori of us to give the box as-is to our students!
Ah, much better! Here are the materials displayed neatly on the shelves so the children can access them and be successful with their use.
We have some fun things in our North America continent basket. This beautiful vase was a birthday gift from my sister… 20 years go!
I need to make labels and picture matching cards to go with these objects. So far I’ve only gotten around to doing that for our Africa basket!. Oh well, it’s on my list!
We made some picture 3-part cards to go with the little models of animals from North America.
What a wide variety of foods we can find in North America! These cards are from Montessori Printshop. I’d love for us to taste all of these one day.

We used a red, white, and blue theme on our art and fine motor shelves once we started talking about the United States.
This is a very simple activity for our younger students. They have to place the Q-tips into the sections of the tray and create pattern.
