Germinating Seeds

Children planting green bean seeds, watering them, the plants getting larger, green beans growing, in a basket, and cooked green beans in a bowl.

Germinating seeds gives a child the opportunity to grow and nurture the life around them. It also encourages the child to explore their relationship with nature.

Dr Maria Montessori used the term “cosmic education” to refer to the concept that everything that has life has a relationship and purpose to life. There is a cosmic purpose to everything.
