Flannel Friday: Seven Continents

Travel the world in this Montessori-inspired flannelboard:

I first got this idea from Pinterest, which led me to Living Montessori Now. I used one of the templates that they provided.

This flannelboard has no rhyme to go along with it — I used this in Number Seven storytime and talked with the kids about the continent that we live on and what the other continents were called. We found where approximately Chicago was and pointed to it. The kids and I had a good time talking about the world and I loved working some geography into storytime!

Linda is hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!

    My kids have a huge cloth world map from the FAO Schwartz line at Toys R Us. It came with Velcro-on labels with names of countries, continents, rivers and oceans, which are nice.Even better are the animals you can velcro to the right continent. We love to read any one of our many (many, many)animal books and identify where in the world they live . I think that could be a fun and easy extension for a map like this in the classroom or library, too!

    Montessori has a song that goes with the continents. ‘North America, South American, Europe, Africa, Asia. Don’t forget Australia, don’t forget Antarctica.’ You can find it on YouTube.

    We used to do a rhyme: “North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Africa, Australia, Antarctica too. These are the seven continents, I know them, do you?”
