The Life Cycle of a Scorpion Activity describes how this invertebrate gives birth to live young. The mother stores their eggs in their belly from a month to a year. They give birth to young nymphs who stay on the mothers’ back for approximately 2 weeks until they gain sufficient strength. Then they go off on their own independent way.
This unique material takes the Child from the verbal story; developing the sensorial (concrete) understanding of the material with the objects, (which are sold separately); to the abstract. The abstract section incorporates images and labels; helping to expand the Child’s vocabulary. Colour-coded material, coded according to the Montessori Animal Kingdom. The scorpions are invertebrates, and coded beige.
