Geography - World Classification-Ecology Cards

Early Childhood and Elementary Card Versions In the EC classroom promote a love of the natural world. The cards are simple to sort. Name the subjects and read the simple sentences. This card format was created by Montessori Kindergarten students in 1996! It promotes literacy! These cards promote a lot of student discussion and interaction.

Years later many of the K students began choosing their favorite and drawing it in their journal. Some copied the sentences. Some copied just the name. Others wrote their own. For some we would write it in pencil or a yellow marker and they would trace over it!

This spontaneous activity by our students persisted year after year. I have now seen it in other classrooms where students have journals!
