The First Great Lesson

Where did the stars come from? And the Sun? How was our Earth created? And what about the rest of the Universe?

Montessori’s First Great Lesson is the elementary child’s first introduction to the sciences. It is a lesson we cherish dearly for its ability to spark interest, promote discovery, and deepen children’s understanding of the cosmic connections throughout the Universe.

Our telling of the First Great Lesson begins before life, before planet Earth, and before the Sun and the stars. As the history of the Universe unfolds, we share a series of interactive demonstrations and visuals that make the story into an experience.

What you’ll learn:

  • How the Universe began
  • How Earth formed
  • The “laws” of the Universe
  • The basic states and properties of matter
