Cosmic Nesting blocks

If the idea of the universe is presented to the child in the right way, it will do more for him than just to arouse his interest , for it will create in him admiration and wonder, a feeling loftier than any interest and more satisfying – Maria Montessori 

Cosmic Nesting Blocks from the Waseca biomes curriculum is such a beautiful work to teach children where they live and how they fit into the whole concept of universe .

This can be personalized for all continents and countries, including the details like state, city, town and name of school.

It includes 10 wooden boxes in neutral wood color, which can be stacked from biggest to smallest. It includes wooden labels with name of each image depicted on the box.
