Imagination

The 2nd plane child is interested in how the world came to be.

We give them the keys to their imagination.

The child can use this imagination to reconstruct the past, see the present and visualize the future. He/She can identify the mistakes that have been made and give possibility for correction.

The information given needs to be clear and limited to what is essential. It needs to be related to their interest in life, their questions and their seeking intellects.

It all should give a vision of creation and the human kind.

Examples of humans that personify compashion and serenity in their efforts to change the course of time, should be given as much as possible. It is important to appeal to the spirit of the child and not just the senses.

All this information, lessons, stories and facts are told to give keys for the child’s own exploration.

Montessori called this

“giving the seeds to be sown”
