Montessori Geography – Land and Water Form (Presentation 1)


A piece of land surrounded by water joined to a large mass of land.

It is difficult to bring the concept of land & water form to young kids. However, Montessori did provide some good concrete material to help the children to learn this abstract concept.

Material needed,

  • A Mold – Peninsula
  • A jug with water (added blue food dyed)

Before working with the material, directress should introduce the concept of Peninsula. Then have the children to pour the blue water into a mold of Peninsula.


Have the child pour the water in the mold. Then directress reminds that Peninsula is a piece of extended land, it has 3 sides surrounded by water. 

Lastly, let the child feel it my herself.
