Julia had a beautiful International Day celebration at her Montessori school, and to commemorate the occasion, Adrian assembled the "Children of the World" 🌎 Puzzle by himself for the first time (buy here). Only a month ago, during our Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, he needed Julia's help to assemble this puzzle (read a post here). And today, tenaciously and steady, he had completed it in eighteen minutes.
This 48-piece circular cardboard floor puzzle is beautifully illustrated, featuring twelve children from around the world dressed in traditional ethnic clothing. This puzzle introduces children to various cultures and helps them notice differences and similarities while illustrating that all people can be friends, holding hands and working together to make the Earth a better place.
Happy International Day! Many schools (Montessori and regular) celebrate International Day sometime in January while employing the opportunity to expose children to diversity and teach tolerance and acceptance of differences. All people are interconnected just by virtue of living on the same planet🌎, and as such, everyone should be treated with tolerance, respect, and kindness.
