How to Use the Temptation of Christ 3-Part Montessori Card Set
Each card is presented with 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, while others may like the challenge of putting some of the events in chronological order. Students can also play a game of concentration when two sets of control cards are printed out and prepared for use.
TIP: Print the cards on cardstock or heavier bond paper if the set will be used a lot. Some teachers may want to laminate the finished pieces for longevity, much handling, and repeated use.
Note: Some very young children may find the images on The Temptation of Christ 3-Part Montessori Cards uncomfortable to view. Teachers should use discretion when incorporating this resource into classroom use.
