In this week curriculum we work on North America map.
I used maps from MontessoriPrintShop to create that Push Pin Map.
I laminated color map and put it on the sturdy cork board.
To create these little push pins I used bamboo skewers I already had in my house. I prefer to use them as they are thicker and I cut them longer than size of toothpicks.
What you need:
* bamboo skewers or toothpicks
* push pins
*2 laminating pouches
I created flashcards in the format of the book for Eaton as he likes to flip pages by himself.
I printed out outlined maps of North America from Montessori print shop and colored each country red on each page. At the bottom of each page I wrote down country name to flash it to Eaton quickly without any hesitation.
For those of you who don't want to purchase any maps I have a free one I downloaded about a year ago from Internet. These files belong to Michelle Harkey. Website unknown at this time. If anyone knows the blog site please contact me and I will post it over here. (This file includes Push Pin Map of Continents).
