Students at the Montessori school in Cairo, Egypt have been busy with multiple activities – from learning about science to formulating the sequence of a storyline. And this is thanks to Blossom Hill Fellow Amin Marei who has curated a special curriculum for the children in the school. Students attending the school are either refugees or come from marginalized communities such as Batn al Baqara.
The science topic of the week was the human body. The children were extremely engaged and fascinated by what they learned. In another activity, a group of 5-year-old girls worked together to present a storyline. The activity is designed to promote collaboration, creativity, and presentation skills. It helps children build emotional intelligence through relationships and interactions and through storytelling and the use of their imagination — all core to the Montessori method.
