20-page Turtle Anatomy Montessori Biology Cultural and Science lesson to explore parts of and structures of these turtally amazing reptiles including turtlestortoises, and terrapins.

We are turtally raging about turtles! Who will not recognize their distinctive shell, scaly body, and wise face? These amazing creatures come in all shapes and sizes! On land, you will find giant, slow-moving tortoises. In freshwaters, you are most likely to meet snappy terrapins basking in the sun. And sea turtles gracefully glide through our oceans all over the world, except in very cold areas. Turtles live in many different environments, including oceans and lakes, deserts and forests, ponds and streams!

However, can a turtle leave its shell and get a new one? And does the shell really protect them, and is it always hard as a helmet? Let’s SHELLebrate these awesome reptiles who date back to the time of the dinosaurs, over 200 million years ago, and look at the anatomy of a turtle to find out!

  💡 WHY HANDS-ON LEARNING? ⠀ It allows little people to engage in kinesthetic learning by doing! Hands-on learning is the common name for ‘Experiential Learning’ – the philosophical term behind the method of immersing oneself in a process in order to learn it. Experiential Learning has been around since 350 BCE, when Aristotle wrote, “for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them”. Most importantly, hands-on learning is uniquely positioned to support or elevate ANY type of learner! Best of all, research has proven that children who learn using hands-on methods with manipulatives outperform those who are not. What are manipulatives? They are physical tools engaging children visually and physically with objects such as figurines, blocks, loose items, etc. The use of manipulatives is constructive because little people are actively engaged in discovery by TOUCHING, TRANSFERRING & MANIPULATING during the learning process. ⠀
