The three years cycle
The Montessori classes are divided into areas of knowledge. In the following video we can see a brief explanation of how it works. The practice area is sometimes shocking because children perform common tasks in any home. This allows them to gain autonomy, independence and confidence, as well as to collaborate with students of different ages, thus leading them to explore roles as leadership and learning from their own mistakes.
The senses are also relevant here because exploration through sight, hearing, touch, etc. is part of the learning experience.
The Montessori materials combine all these areas to make students discover knowledge through the sensory experience of touching, handling and ultimately do, rather than listening.
