Scenario 1

Both Friedrich Froebel and Maria Montessori developed unique materials to support their methods of teaching children. These materials are still used in classrooms today. Imagine that you are an early childhood educator at a preschool where you teach a class of 3- to 5-year-olds.

Part A: Develop an original age-appropriate activity for your preschool class using one of the following.

⦁ Froebel’s cube gift

⦁ Froebel’s parquetry gift

⦁ Lincoln Logs

⦁ Describe the activity that you have developed.

⦁ Identify at least two (2) skills that the activity would help develop.

Part B: Develop an original age-appropriate activity for your preschool class promoting the same skill(s) as the activity above, but develop the activity based on the Montessori method.

⦁ Describe the activity that you have developed.

⦁ What are at least two key differences between the two activities you developed?
