Teaching the States of Australia

I've discovered an ingenious method of teaching the states of Australia.

To be fair, I'm not the first one to find it either, nor will I be the last.

This fabulous method uses 3 part cards, Montessori style.

I printed them up, laminated them, and cut them out.

Miss 4 finds that they are so quick, simple, and fun - all the while putting that trivial knowledge in her head without any thought that it might be difficult.  Today I asked her how many states does Australia have?  She was able to tell me without me having to prompt or lead her on.  Yay~!!

Next week I'll start asking her to tell me what each state is without the title prompts.

Technically, we're still on school break here, so the older girls will get a peek at this next week when school resumes.

If you're interested in making your own 3 part cards for the Australian States you can get them for FREE from A Moment In Our World.

Thanks for visiting.
