Montessori Six Kingdoms Complete Printable Charts, and Activities

Your early work and continuing with botany and zoology have lead you to this point. We are using the Montessori Research and Development Elementary Biology Manual(s) as a basic guideline for this work. This manual set has two volumes part 1 & 2. Part 1 looks at Prokaryotic & Eukaryotic Cells, Fungi, Protista, Bacteria and it still lists Archaea under the Bacteria Kingdom, which has now been classified into it's own Kingdom. In part two you will look at the Plant & Animal Kingdoms and cells.  
All of our visits to the zoo, botanical gardens,  nature walks and discoveries that our children have made, created a base of building blocks for this work.






It was never important to me that my children memorize the names of many different species and facts as much as they appreciate the value, beauty and diversity of life.

It wasn’t important to me that I have all the answers , as much as it was/ is about the journey to find them, and that my children ARE asking questions lots and lots of questions! 
We made the most of this journey and quest for answers, because it is this process that was so very valuable.

If you have not explored a great deal in terms of Zoology (animals) and Botany (plant life) no worries,  it's never too late to start. Plan some simple fun outings, and just get started!


Here are a couple of posts to check out...




So here we are with more questions than ever about our natural world, and it (for us) is the perfect time to introduce the Six Kingdoms. From here many more questions and areas of study will open up, including our journey into the human body to take a much closer in depth look at anatomy.

Your journey may not look like ours and that is ok. Do what works for you. This is just the flow and order of things that worked for our family and children, do what makes sense for you.

I found it hard when we started our Montessori journey to not get caught up in the popular activities I was seeing online, and especially thinking I needed to do it all and in the timeline that others were doing it.
If you get caught in that trap you will end up ultimately following the crowd and not the flow of your children and family. 

The internet is an amazing resource and if you use it as a resource instead of a guideline/timeline then you will make the most of it for your family and needs. Think of how incredible it is that there are millions of people posting and sharing their incredible ideas and work with their children at different times places, paces and need of their family. We have the opportunity to draw from that whatever it is that you need at your pace in your own time. I am in awe of the internet, social media and all of the sharing and resources available to us. It has never been a more exciting time to be a home learner life learner unschooler like us.

In this post I am going to spend some time introducing you to our Six Kingdoms Complete Set of Charts and Activities. I spent a great deal of time trying to find affordable quality charts and materials that were complete and had activities to go with them. I found tons of amazing stuff out there some very very expensive and some not so, but in the end could not find what I was looking for.                   So we have spent a great deal of time creating our own! 
All of the photography in the files is my own. If I did not have an image or graphic that I needed I created an original digital image. This was a huge amount of work and took a great deal of effort and time. We are so excited with the results and the kids LOVE the materials, and that is of the greatest up-most importance to us since the materials were created for them.                                                      I hope this package will be helpful to you. I found this work to be a bit confusing trying to piece it all together in the beginning so I am hopeful this will give you a good understanding of the work.

This is a HUGE file!! Our Six Kingdom files contain 180 Pages including the materials and instructions, suggestions for use and also included are materials and suggestions suited to create lap books and journals with your children should you choose.
The materials are scale-able to include smaller children in various activities as this was also a need for us.
The next two files included are a set Eukaryotic Cell 3 Part Cards and Prokaryotic Cell 3 Part Cards and Definitions.

I have also included a full set of printable labels to help you organize your materials.

This set of books is absolutely amazing!! I looked for quite some time to find great books to accompany these materials. I love these books because they give such a clear picture of the Six Kingdoms and a practical understanding with beautiful images and concise but in depth facts.
I have included a second graphic of links to these books so our  mobile friends can see them!

Lab Cards
6 Different Simple easy to follow Microscope lab activities

Microscope there are many options available. We chose a binocular scope because it's easy on the eyes, and you can also have your digital camera in one eye piece while you work with the other. We did upgrade our camera though. Check this post for more details about our scope and materials we purchased to go along with it.









I created a short video to give you a good picture of how we prepared the materials and how we are using them. I had far to many images to post here so this was a great option to give you an inside look!

  4. Hi Cherine,

    So definitely want to buy. What amazing work! Just in time for me wanting to do this too. Any chance you can sell each of the units/charts separately, please? I'd happily pay a bit more per unit, just to buy as I need them.

    warm regards,
    Tracey

  5. Hi Cherine, just bought the package and the math package as well. I wondered if there is a way to make a shopping cart? I found that I had to go to PayPal and pay for each item sepeatly. I generate extra charges when I pay this way so wondered if there is a way around it.

    1. I wish there were Alicia! Perhaps they will offer this option in the future. I have kept the cost very low to compensate, and also offer packages very deeply discounted. Thank you so much for supporting our work!!!
