"I am a lower elementary teacher, and my students have been using your South America, Europe, and Asia puzzle map apps. They LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them."
"I am in my forties and I have learned most of Europe in a couple days. This method really works."
Learn the names and locations of all the countries in Europe with this app that beautifully complements the geography materials used in the Montessori Classroom!
First, learn the names and locations of the European Countries:
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.
Next, move on to the puzzle maps where you can assemble the complete European 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. As each country piece is placed its 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.
The third puzzle map is an open activity for children to assemble the map in any order they choose.
This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children!
Once you master the European countries, learn the Flags of Europe with our follow-up app! Thank you for your support of our Montessori apps!
