Refresh Your Summer Giveaway #2- Fundamental Needs of Humans Chart

Sometimes I think I should never ever tell you, as my readers, what I plan to do in this space!  I try to do the whole build excitement thing, but as a mom first, life always seems to get in the way of my well laid plans.  Without further delay or introduction, later than intended and out of order, I present to you Refresh Your Summer Giveaway #2!

Untitled



The Fundamental Needs of Humans Chart is the backbone of the study of culture in the elementary years.  We have used a homemade version for several years, which has more than met our needs, but the chart I am giving away now is professional, durable, and beautiful!   Regardless of the approach your family takes to learning history, this material can provide a framework and supplement for studying culture throughout time.

The chart I am giving away includes a control chart with all of the pictures and illustrations and a blank (mute) chart with pieces to cut out for the child to sort on their own.  The pieces are a combination of thicker paper and a transparency-like material.  You can view more information about the product on the ETC Montessori website, here.

Please do not feel intimidated if you are not a Montessori style homeschooler, this giveaway IS for you too.  I promise you will find a way to integrate this material.  If you are not familiar with it, check out my original Core Montessori post on the Fundamental Needs of people.   You may also want to check out the coordinating blank research web, available for free in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  Even if your child attends a public or private school, I bet there is a teacher there who could find a use for this material.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post with your favorite history resource or link.  (Then be sure to check back to see what other readers have shared.)  Then enter your information into the Rafflecoptor.  Earn additional entries by liking Work and Play, Day by Day on Facebook and sharing the giveaway with your friends and family.  You can earn an extra entry each day for sharing, so don't forget to check back!  Prize must be shipped to a US address.

Note:  This giveaway is sponsored exclusively by my own carelessness in ordering an extra copy of this particular material, I have no affiliation with ETC Montessori other than being a satisfied customer!  I particularly enjoy their timelines because of the durability of the material.   If you decide to check them out, be sure to let them know that Heidi and Work and Play, Day by Day sent you!

I went and reread the post and saw that you asked for me to leave a comment sharing what my favorite history material is... My favorite and the kiddos favorite is The Timeline of Life. Thank you again for this opportunity. It is an awesome giveaway!

What a great opportunity. For us so far, our favorite history resource is our own family. We are learning about our roots. We are a multicultural/ multiracial family with lots of history to be learned!

One of our favorite History resources for my oldest has been the Dear America Diary and Royal Diary books - she loves to read true to life accounts - it makes history come alive for her! Another favorite of the entire family is actually a video series - Liberty's Kids. We stumbled upon them a year or so ago, and my children love to watch the fictional main characters depicting the nonfictional historical stories! :) Thanks for this giveaway - I would love to win this!

Martianne said...

We love Liberty Kids videos online, Your Story Hour CD's from the library and Animated Hero Classics videos from the library!

I am just learning about Montessori history, and my kids are still preschoolers. So I would say my favorite history resource is an hourglass.

We love books to flesh out our history studies. Both fiction and non-fiction. I have enjoyed the Story of the World books to give a sense of the profession.

Erin said...

ETC Montessori is definitely my favorite history resource. We have their Timeline of Life and it is excellent.
