Land & Water 3-Part Cards
Land & Water Cards &  Books
Land & Water terminology is basic geographic knowledge every child needs to know. Our photo and definitions cards and books help
children gain a complete understanding of each geographic form. First, use the 3-Part Photo Cards to present a clear visual definition of key
land and water forms. If you have them, show children how to match the photos to the land & water forms/trays-a classic Montessori work. At
any point, read the Land & Water booklet aloud to give children the words that match their hands-on sensorial experiences with the trays,
cards, and real life. After the children have success with the Phonetic Reading Cards, use all three parts of the 3-part cards for independent
reading. Finally, use the Definition Cards to let children have fun while they read for meaning.

Choose Land & Water I for basic forms (island, lake, gulf, bay, peninsula, isthmus, cape, bay, archipelago, system of lakes). Choose Land &
Water II for advanced forms (mesa, canyon, volcano, reservoir, glacier, desert, lagoon, spit, river, delta). Download our free

Definition Cards
Definition Cards let children have fun while they read for meaning. These reading classification cards create a textual puzzle that children
can manipulate as they build each definition. Each Definition Card packet includes the following for each term: Control Card (3 2/3" x 4 1/3");
the Control Card cut into a Word Card (3 2/3" x 3/4") and a Full Definition Card (3 2/3" x 3 3/8"); and the Control Card cut into a Word Card (3
2/3" x 3/4"), a First-half Definition Card (3 2/3" x 1 1/4"), and a Second-half Definition Card (3 2/3" x 2 1/4"). Designed for children who have
mastered phonetic reading (ages 5+). Download our free

These lay-flat full color booklets put the 3-part cards and definition cards together in book form. Open the book and find the photo on
the left-hand page (where the eye naturally falls first) and the corresponding definition (with the term isolated in red) on the right-hand
work with them freely. The pages are just like our laminated cards; a heavyweight, environmentally-sound paper laminated with a non-
toxic 5 mil laminate. The outer corners are rounded to avoid tactile distractions. This design provides a clean, durable, and inviting
sensory interface. The clear, precise, and relevant text insures that these books will be a true and valued reference throughout the
child's school years. Books are approx. 4¼” x 5¼”.
