Montessori Model United Nations
“Avoiding war is the work of politics; establishing peace is the work of education.” ~ Maria Montessori.
Montessori elementary students can now participate in an international extra-curricular activity, in parallel to their ongoing classroom activities as well as experiencing and gaining the skills needed to excel in the international political or non-political arena. The venue is a model United Nations and the related subjects involved are history, geography, language and public relations. What a better place for a debate participants to take place, next to competitions and more competitions.
I find this partnership between North American Montessori organisations and United Nations enlightening and remarkable. Can this charming learning experience be replicated for kindergarten children?
