Maps and Globes in a Montessori Home

One of the reasons I love Montessori is its early emphasis on an understanding of the world. Through the study of geography and culture, young children are exposed to this great planet of ours and the wonderful people who inhabit it. This deep appreciation leads to a greater understanding and hopefully a more peaceful world. 

Using maps and globes in your home can add a beautiful touch to your space and help children become more globally aware.

For the home, I like globes and maps for another reason too -- beauty. Children are inherently attracted to beautiful things. Special little touches in an environment call to the child. They make the child feel like this space has been perfectly prepared for them, it invites them in, and they are hooked. I feel like the right map or globe is just the perfect touch to add something special to the environment and call to your child. 

We personally have several throughout our home. We have this beautiful topographic globe that I found at a thrift store, in Henry and Nora's bedroom. We have a continent map {hand made by Henry} in our art area. We have a DIY continent globe and a large political wall map in our playroom. 

Using maps and globes in your home can add a beautiful touch to your space and help children become more globally aware.
