Make learning fun for preschoolers by incorporating lessons with their favorite dinosaurs. Check out below for the step-by-step instructions for our fun, easy dinosaur craft Montessori activity that will help kids learn about geometric shapes.
As we well know, mathematics is of great importance in the cognitive development of children. One way to teach children about all these abstract concepts, which can be very difficult for them, is through activities involving geometric shapes. That will allow them to understand better the world surrounding them since our environment is full of shapes and colors.
The activities with geometric figures allow children to develop their creativity, imagination, laterality, visual-motor coordination, find similarities and differences between the figures. A good strategy to teach children mathematics is making them recognize each of their physical qualities and achieve more complex mental processes such as organization, classification, and quantification
These activities can be involved in children’s daily life. This way, they will learn in a concrete and real way, as proposed by the Montessori learning method. Children can associate each of these related concepts with their own life, starting from their own experience. This will allow them to acquire abstract ideas more easily.
It is essential to keep in mind that children have the capacity to learn all these concepts. You just have to find the best way to present such ideas to them. The game and didactic activities are an excellent strategy. The following easy dinosaur craft exercise is based on the Montessori learning method. Children will develop different mental processes such as discrimination, association, identification, and tracking patterns through play.
