What’s on Our Montessori Shelves – Human Body

A couple of months ago, as the plants started to spring back into life, as the birds started busying themselves with nest building and as we welcomed some frog spawn into our home, Little Bean's interest was turned from the human body towards the life cycles of these creatures and plants.

Weather Stones – Science Explorations for Toddlers
