The scientifically researched and created sensorial material is unique to the Montessori method; it invites children to be explorers, provides independence, love of learning, and knowledge.
The sensorial material stimulates the senses and carries impressions to the mind; it also gives children concrete experiences of abstract ideas and further develops their attention span and natural path of development. The sensorial material is grouped according to what senses are stimulated.
Activities for the visual sense include dimension, form, shape, size, and color. Activities for the auditory sense involve working with: sound, pitch, speech, and silence. For the tactile sense, we explore texture, form, plasticity, temperature, and weight. For the olfactory sense, there are activities with scents. Finally, for the gustatory sense, we explore the different tastes. The purpose of the sensorial material is the refinement of the senses and the development of the intellect.
