The Montessori Fundamental Needs Chart is a beautiful and informative tool that can be used to teach children about the fundamental needs of humans.
The purpose of this lesson is to introduce the idea that all humans throughout space and time, have had the same material and spiritual needs. It provides a universal framework for thinking about other people, no matter how different they may seem to us.
This New Fundamental Needs Chart includes an extra dimension of culture that will help tie the fundamental needs of humans into all other areas of the history curriculum and provide a robust foundation for integrating all of the Montessori cultural lessons. Please read this blog post to learn more.
