Montessori Geography Boxes!

Well, Lori has done it again! Montessori for Everyone never ceases to inspire me! Please check out her post at the Montessori for Everyone blog. She shares pictures and ideas for putting together your own Montessori geography continent boxes.

After thinking about how I would go about starting to make my own, I saw this holding art supplies in my laundry room:
I bought it at Target and guess what? There are SEVEN drawer boxes! Seven for the seven continents! The boxes are completely removable and each have their own lid. With a little color coded labeling, these will be perfect for me to make a continent cabinet filled with a book on each continent, coins, textiles, Safari ltd. animals from Michaels, pictures of saints from each continent, and pictures showing the universality of the Catholic faith around the world.
