Peer Teaching: The Fibonacci Sequence

Two of our Upper Elementary students used the cubing material to demonstrate the Fibonacci sequence to their younger classmates. As a lovely touch, they added objects from the nature museum in the classroom to describe how it is found in everything from the human ear to an ammonite fossil to floration in a sunflower head.

The cubing material is one of the last concrete materials used in Montessori. It is representative of a culmination of material that begins with the sensorial pink tower, translates through the colours of the decanomial and arrives in three dimension to explain larger concepts like the Table of Pythagoras.
