SOCIAL STUDIES AND SCIENCE
Dr. Montessori felt that social studies and science should be integrated into the classroom, as they are in life. Therefore, no clear distinctions exist among any of the various areas included in this section when they are studied in the classroom. This sequence is comprised of a Human Relations curriculum that serves as an organizing center in the “cultural” subjects, especially geography and history. Anthropology, astronomy, biology, botany, chemistry, economics, geology, government, philosophy, physics, political behavior, sociology, and zoology are also included.
