Students in Montessori classrooms work with specially designed learning materials, manipulating and investigating them to master the lessons they embody. Each material, as presented by the teacher, teaches one skill or concept at a time. Built-in "control of error" allows the child to determine if he or she has done the exercise correctly. Materials offer multiple levels of challenge and can be used repeatedly at different developmental levels. Students use real objects and actions to translate abstract ideas into concrete form.
