The observation of different cultures form an important part of classroom activities. When children examine a new country or continent, they discuss representative music, national costume/dress, games, food, and art. They are greeted and dismissed in the language of the country and learn to recognize major landmarks from the displays of books and photographs.

 Part of this study involves the celebration of holidays such as Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Duvali, Id, Chinese New Year, and St. Patrick’s Day, among other festive occasions. All holidays are discussed in a cultural rather than religious context.

 Geographical studies employ special Montessori equipment including maps, and land/water formations.
