This product; the Timeline of the Seasons – Northern Hemisphere; is an essential activity for every Montessori pre-school, to introduce the concept of the passage of time, in their curriculum.  Seasons divide the year, and are marked by changes in weather, ecology, and the amount of daylight every month.  As with any traditional Montessori material, the Child gains knowledge of more than just one subject.  This activity indirectly provides the building blocks for mathematics, language, geography, time and culture.

“A child, who more than anyone else is a spontaneous observer of nature, certainly needs to have at his disposal material upon which he can work.”
—Maria Montessori – Discovery of the Child
