Learn the names and locations of all the countries in the United Kingdom with this app that beautifully complements the geography materials used in the Montessori Classroom! NOTE: In the traditional Montessori materials Ireland is included with the puzzle map, so our app does, as well. It is clearly stated in lesson #1 that Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom.
In Lesson #1 learn the names and locations of countries in the United Kingdom:
Touch a country in the filmstrip to change the featured country on the page. Touch the speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the country name and touch the compass button to see the country highlighted on the map! The map itself follows the same color scheme used for the physical materials in the Montessori classroom.
In Lessons #2 & #3 assemble the complete United Kingdom puzzle map with pieces that are exact replicas of the physical Montessori materials:
In the first puzzle map lesson children have to look for the country puzzle piece that is blinking on the map. When they touch the correct piece it will move into position on the map and the country name can be heard aloud.
In the second puzzle map lesson children have to look for the country puzzle piece that corresponds to the name shown at the top. For children who cannot read, the country name at the top can be touched to hear the name aloud for them to know which one to look for.
This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children! Thanks for your support of our Montessori apps!
