5 Books I Love for the Second Plane (6+)

There are so many amazing resources online for young children when it comes to Montessori. It is so much harder to find resources that are appropriate for older children! The shift to the second plane of development occurs somewhere between age 6 and age 7 for most children. It marks a huge shift how a child thinks, learns, and acts.

So, I wanted to share some newer resources that I've found and am loving  at home for the second plane! These would be great for any older child book collection!

These books all work well with Montessori's vision of "cosmic education" for children in elementary school. Montessori said, "Interest will no longer be there if the seed be sown too late, but at six years of age all items of culture are received enthusiastically, and later these seeds will be expand and grow. If asked how many seeds may be sown, my answer is: 'as many as possible!'" {To Educate the Human Potential} These books all fit these goals, covering a large amount of fantastic information in a way that is relatable to this age!

Do you have any second plane books you love?

As a child, I loved a magazine we had in our 1st-3rd grade classroom called "Faces." It was sort of anthropology for kids. I wonder if it's still in print.
