Whale Watching at Byron Bay!
What are the Montessori Metal Insets?

Creating an 'exploration' area for Otis.

Movable Alphabet Whale at How we Montessori

We've changed our nature table into a whale exploration area! When I don't want to purchase any new materials I turn to my printer. I've printed out some excellent resources to help the boys make sense of their whale watching adventure. I want them to learn from the materials, to find out the answers themselves.  

Otis collected his model whales and the globe. I collected all of our printed materials and some pictures. We put a basket of whale-themed books next to the table.
