Dr. Montessori said: “The aim is not to create a cultural mind, but a spiritual soul based on reality. Therefore, history should not be taught as a collection of dates and places. But rather be approched to arouse gratitude and appreciation. This gratitude should be aroused first to the law and order of the universe and the preparation of the environment into which human beings came.’

Participation in every day life develops a feeling of worthiness in a person called upon to share it in an active way. Children become not only users of the world in which they live, but also producers. The basic experience of being able to change and transform the environment gives the person a feeling of personal worth that remains forever. “I am worth something” is added to the previous feeling that “I can do things”, and then becomes “I can do important things”.
