Hanukkah Highlights

One aspect of the Montessori philosophy which I feel important to cultivate is its emphasis on cultural appreciation and peace through understanding.  To that end, we have spent some time in the classroom talking about Hanukkah and reading stories about this celebration.  I thought it would be fitting to put together the following activity (thanks, again to my treasure trove acquisition last summer):

A menorah with candles on a tray.

The children place a candle in the candle holders.
I also placed another menorah in our classroom which is being used for the Practical Life Metal Polishing activity:

Polishing a Menorah.
