I'm curious to see how other Montessori schools do it.
I have the basic Cultural "works" on the shelves. Living/nonliving, plant/animal, vertebrate/invertebrate. Animals of the continents, people of the continents, botany, parts of.......clocks, calendars, etc. I also have 2 shelves that I change to reflect what we are learning about in the classroom. I just put new "works" such as: parts of a turkey, breeds of turkeys, parts of a pumpkin and apple. I will be adding Native American works too. Usually in the winter it will be animal tracks and skins, snow crystals, etc. I also will put physical science experiments such as magnetic/non-magnetic, sink or float, sound, etc. You can go to my website and see pictures.
Other teachers at my school has done a "special week" for each child. Each child's family will give a presentation on a particular continent or culture representing their families. It may be a baking project, craft, etc.
