How it works

We make it easy for you to give your children & students a hands-on, big picture experience with science.

Choose a lesson that sparks your learner’s interest

Properties of matter, tectonic plates, planetary movement, the periodic table, the work of water … There are so many lessons to explore, and we’re always adding more!

Within each lesson, you’ll see 1-3 engaging videos. You can have your child/student watch these videos, or you can use them as inspiration to give the lesson yourself.

The lesson videos are designed to spark your child/student’s innate curiosity, and help them ask and answer questions about the world around them. You can view one of our free lessons to get a feel for what the videos and accompanying activities are like.

We currently have 28 big picture lessons that include 41 lesson videos and over 100 hands-on experiments & activities. We’re constantly working on new things for you too, and they always get added to your membership at no additional cost.

The lessons page follows a natural sequence from top to bottom. However, staying true to Montessori principles, the lessons are designed to be chosen and given based on the child’s interests, and your observations of them, rather than given in a strict order. 

If you’re not seeing any particular child interest, and you’re not sure how to go about choosing a lesson to spark some, you can follow the sequential order on the lessons page.

There are two key Montessori teaching principles that stand out to us when it comes to science education: following the interest of the child, and teaching from a cosmic perspective. All of our lessons are created with these two principles in mind.

Our lessons align with the Montessori geography album, where physical science is traditionally introduced. We’ve also expanded on its teachings with Montessori-aligned STEM lessons that go beyond the albums

Nope! Our lessons and activities are designed to be open-and-go. They are ready to be used by anyone – even students (with proper safety and supervision of course).

Many traditional schools have found great value in using Montessori Laboratory lessons. The lessons align and integrate well with standard elementary science curriculums, while giving more of a big picture and hands-on experience with science.

At the same time, we have many accredited Montessori schools, Montessori-trained teachers, and Montessori homeschooling families that have been very pleased with the quality of our resources and our dedication to staying true to Montessori principles.

All of our lesson videos are available with both English and Spanish narration. All of our experiments, activities, and other resources are available in both languages as well. You can change languages in the main menu.

Let them dive into a hands-on experiment or activity

All lessons contain videos, experiments, and activities that are designed to build on each other. After watching the lesson video(s), choose from one of the accompanying hands-on experiments or activities.

There is an ever-increasing number of hands-on experiments and activities for you to choose from. Right now we have over 100. If you click on any of the lessons, you will see all of the activity options that go with them.

We offer our Foundations Science Kit as an optional add-on to your membership. It includes all of the basics that you need to get set up right out of the box. We also have a full list of materials that you’ll need if you prefer to collect them all yourself.

Yes! All of the experiments and lesson materials are designed so that students can be the directors of their own learning. As a safety precaution, adult supervision is necessary.
