Montessori Scope and Sequence: History


The History Scope and Sequence provides students with opportunities to explore a variety of concepts including how the world began, the story of life on Earth, and the development of civilizations. With these goals in mind, the sequence of lessons and materials is important. The History category is divided into sub-categories that contain lessons sequenced in the order in which they would be introduced for most children in many Montessori classrooms.


The History Scope and Sequence is displayed in the following “online magazine” format. Lessons/Materials are listed on the spreadsheet, sequenced the same as they are in the Montessori Compass online record keeping software. Each lesson/material may contain multiple elements, which are tagged to the appropriate cycle year(s). In some cases, parent-friendly descriptions will be listed, designed to help parents gain greater insight into the Montessori classroom.
