María Montessori focuses the study of Sciences in two areas: Cultural Areas: from 3 to 6 years old and Cosmic Education: from 6 to 12 years old.

In this first stage of introduction to science, the innate curiosity of children is used to bring them in a respectful way with nature. Sensory aspects of biology and geography begin to be known.

One of the characteristics of Montessori pedagogy is to offer children the different areas in an interrelated way, so that they can identify how each living being contributes to natural balance, while satisfying their needs.

This work plan, designed for children between the ages of six and twelve, is based on some activities that are carried out from the age of three and allows children to channel natural wonder at nature, to respect it in its different manifestations .

The Montessori approach to the study of science promotes cross-sectional work, while cultivating admiration and respect for the planet and its inhabitants.

“All sciences can be linked as rays that arise from a single interest that clarifies, facilitates and fosters all knowledge.”  –   Maria Montessori

Discover the meaning of: Cultural Area (stage 3-6 years), Cosmic (stage 6-12 years) and what these two great areas encompass.

Cultural Areas – Stage 3-6 years

At level 3 to 6 years, the introduction to science is done through materials that allow a first sensory impression of the concept, focusing on the study of Geography and Biology and including some experiments. It is also used to enrich children’s vocabulary.

The natural curiosity and the ease of children of this age to perceive the details, favor a respectful approach towards plants and animals, which represents the basis of an ecological culture.

“When the child knows that the life of the sown plants depends on their care in watering them and that of the animals on their diligence in providing food, the child remains vigilant as one who begins to feel a mission in life.” – Maria Montessori

Cosmic Education – Stage 6-12 years

“There is a plan to which the entire universe is subject. All things, animate and inanimate, are subordinate to that plan, “says Dr. Montessori.

Understanding the importance of maintaining the natural balance and discovering what the task itself will be, is the purpose of Cosmic Education.

From the age of six, an understanding of how the world works is deepened and history is added as the articulating element that gives meaning to what is learned. The experiments are expanded and present the basic laws of physics and chemistry to facilitate concepts of Geography and Biology.

Cosmic Education is a work plan designed for children in primary school, which promotes the development of a reasoning mind, but also appreciation for what is created by nature itself and by humanity
