Teach About the Christ Child's Relatives with the Family of Jesus 3-Part Montessori Card Set.
Use the Family of Jesus 3-Part Montessori Card Set to encourage students to explore art as they view images of Jesus' parents, grandparents, and cousins. The pieces feature works from Sassoferrato, Mengs, Flores, Murillo, and Bloch.
Children can learn at their own pace or through play using this set of Montessori cards. These beautiful little pieces can help children identify some of Christ's immediate family. The saints featured in this set include the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, St. Anne & St. Joachim, St. John the Baptist, and St. Elizabeth.
How to Use the Family of Jesus 3-Part Montessori Card Set
Each card has a control card as well as a separate picture portion and title piece. Prepare the cards by cutting the pieces apart on the white space between the boxes.
One way to use the cards is to have children match title cards with image cards and check their selections using the control cards.
Some learners may enjoy just looking at the cards. In contrast, some students can also play a concentration or match-up game when two sets of control cards are printed out and prepared for use.
TIP: Print the cards on cardstock or heavier bond paper if learners will use the set a lot. Some teachers may want to laminate the finished pieces for longevity, much handling, and repeated use.
