4. Geology
The geology album contains 51 pages which include 33 colored photos and 18 activities. The album presentations help children realize through the study of geology that Earth's past has been recorded in the rocks. Children recognize that there are treasures at their feet and that our planet is in a constant state of change. Activities include how to bring geology into the different areas of the classroom as well as the following: rock art, needs of man - aesthetics, observation of the hardness scale, observation of physical properties, minerals, gems, ore, igneous rock, sedimentary rock, metamorphic rock, fossils, and layers of the earth.

5. Geography
The geography album contains 177 pages which include nomenclature cards (which are ready to print, cut out and use along with booklets and wall charts) for landforms (island, lake, isthmus, strait, peninsula, gulf, archipelago, system of lakes, cape, and bay). A set of label cards for the directionality activities (north, south, east, west) and more than 45 activities!

7. Language
The language album contains 514 pages which include templates and examples for initial sounds, pink/blue/green reading schemes, grammar, and writing. There are over 170 presentations. The language materials offered in a Montessori classroom break down the elements of reading. This enables the young child to experience the structure of language in a concrete way. This album gives systematic activities so that the child who can express themselves can analyze the sounds of the language. The child learns that these sounds are represented by symbols. We use these symbols to represent our speech patterns. The album begins with activities that cover preparation for reading and writing. Next are presentations on how to introduce the initial sounds, 2 to 3-letter phonetic words, 3 or more phonetic words, reading (green), grammar, writing letters, and numerals.

8. Mathematics
The mathematics album contains almost 400 pages which include close to 200 presentations. The mathematics materials offered in a Montessori classroom help to awaken mathematical ideas in the young child. This is first experienced through the use of materials in the practical life area of the environment. These activities develop coordination between the brain and the senses. Next, sensorial exercises develop concrete manipulative experiences in discovering perceptual relationships. The mathematics album gives systematic activities so that the young child starts with presentations that prepare them for math. Then they progress to presentations on numeration sets, linear counting, base 10 (decimal system), golden beads, stamp games, and presentations on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. As an optional purchase, mathematic support forms are available. These include over 125 forms that support the math album and include beginning activities, mathematical charts, addition forms, subtraction forms, multiplication forms, division forms, colored bead bars, golden beads, stamp games, dot boards, strip boards, tens and teen boards, etc.

9. Practical Life
The practical life album contains 340 pages which include over 150 activities! The practical life album guides the child into how they can take care of themselves and the world around them. These presentations are also important because they prepare the hand so that the child will be able to learn to write and manipulate objects. These presentations include exercises of grace and courtesy, whole hand, wrist turning, three-finger grasp, care of the indoor environment, care of the outdoor environment, care of self, cutting preparation, writing preparation, food preparation, and handwork.

10. Physical Science
The physical science album contains 303 pages which include over 80 activities! The physical science album helps children promote their sense of inquiry. Why, what, when, who, and how are some of the first words that a child learns. These presentations guide a child through experiences that help them define the world around them. The presentations include introductions and activities on matter, liquid, solid, gas, living, non-living, once-living, vertebrates, invertebrates, elasticity, plasticity, rigidity, light - shadows/reflection/refraction, energy, light - working as energy, electricity - working as energy, magnets - working as energy, air - working as energy, water - working as energy, moving air, and water - working as energy, sink and float, sound, gravity, simple machines, friction, wedges, levers, inclined planes, pulleys, wheels and axles, screws, machines as everyday tools.
