Montessori Inspired Zoology ~ Body Coverings (Free Printables)
Welcome back to 12 months of Montessori learning where you get ideas, activities, free printables, and so much more. Each month we put together themed activities and share them with you, in hopes that you discover new ways to incorporate Montessori into your life. This month I am super excited to explore Zoology and Body Coverings.
Body Coverings of Animals and Animal Activities
Montessori Zoology for Kids ~ Body Coverings
On our morning walk, we spotted a turtle crossing the street. We enjoyed watching it for 20 minutes and made sure it got safely across. We also got a chance to talk about turtles and their bodies. Bells insisted on wearing her brother’s doggie pants 😉
Enjoying our dog Peanut and his super soft fur.
Having a pet brings a lot of unique qualities to your family because it teaches children responsibility, empathy, and so much more. Children love caring for their pet.
After spotting these amazing new books from Montessori Services, I knew they were the perfect thing to start our zoology unit off.
Learning about body coverings is so important and not always introduced to children. These books make it easy because they have the best pictures and great information. Children love them!
Spend time reading body coverings books or other great animal books with your kids, incorporate the fabulous free body coverings printables below, and you have yourself an excellent week of zoology. If you can visit a pet store, a zoo, or a nature reserve that would make it even better.
“The exploration of the community outside the classroom necessarily leads the children to an authentic discovery.” ~ Montessori Today
We have been having the best time with these animal pictures and classifying them has been great for the kids. I hope you enjoy them too.
