Ancient Egypt

It’s been a minute! Planning a school year and re-working a website takes a lot of time! To go along with my website re-launch, I want to highlight a really fun new product in my store – a set of five (more to be added) historical science experiments to goContinue Reading

One of the wonderful things about Montessori education is the emphasis on global awareness right from the Primary level. Three to six year old students work with puzzle maps, experience festivals from around the world, and explore continent boxes.
