|•The Global Perspective in the Montessori Classroom
Description: The Montessori Lower Elementary geography curriculum encourages children to look beyond their own geographical place and culture, and learn about other people and places – knowledge that in our interconnected world is crucial. Through map-making, cultural studies, cultural history, respect for the world and all its inhabitants, past and present, creates a mindful global perspective in children. The interconnectedness of all living things worldwide is a cornerstone of Montessori peace education.
