Abstract/Notes: This simple, first-published article by Mario Montessori was written in Kodaikanal, India, and reveals a great Montessori truth that has never been so explicit: There are developmental stages for practical life that cross over into nature study and living experiences. Although more abstract, the second plane has a strong practical life component that connects the six- to twelve-year-old to the real natural world. This emphasis on the second plane makes an even stronger, more unified connection between the developmental continuum that is completely embedded in the natural world before and after elementary. [This article is a synopsis of a lecture on the Kodaikanal Advanced Course of 1943-44, in Kodaikanal, India.]

Abstract/Notes: [...]she looks at our picture of Maria Montessori (whom we had discussed earlier that morning) hanging on the wall and observes, "So Maria Montessori is just a skeleton right now?" I say that that is probably correct. In the first hours of my teacher education, I jotted down this quote: "Cosmic education is the total interrelated functioning of the whole universe, which allows elementary children to store and organize a great amount of knowledge from among a wide range of different subject matter areas and disciplines" (Montessori, 1948, p. 21). Montessori maintained that children learn best in an environment that encourages freedom of movement and discovery, and a space to develop an early understanding about their place as individuals in the universe. In the Children's House, the prepared environment provides an order that allows for educating the whole child in every aspect from the use of materials that lead to natural consequences (for example, if there is a spill, the responsible person cleans it up) to furniture and works specifically designed for small hands.
