In the science curriculum, children continue to build their understanding of the components which make up our planet earth.
Such studies are often child-directed and may include botany, zoology, anatomy, physics, and astronomy. Children are encouraged to act as scientists and to work together to pose hypotheses, conduct experiments, and draw their own conclusions from their research.
Through their scientific studies, Montessori children begin to understand the effects of waste on our planet, and become mindful of the ways in which they can protect our resources and the beauty of the world that surrounds them. Through composting, gardening, recycling, and repurposing, Philly Montessori children learn to become lifelong stewards of our planet.
