Land and Water

The girls are doing a land and water related art project so I'm stepping away for a minute to post another resource. Amber Carvan has a lovely website/newsletter that she puts out chronicling her own families arts and crafts. Each newsletter has a theme, such as "bees" or "pirates", which is useful when your kids are into something particular or to have as part of a "lesson" (Why do I have such a hard time remembering Montessori terms?)

As for us: Each girl has a piece of blue paper and a piece of brown paper. We talked about properties of land and water, which paper meant which & why, what lives on land and what lives in water, now the girls are stamping items on each paper and painting "pictures" of other things in the appropriate habitat.
