The course and the material offered will be in Spanish and English with the help of a professional for simultaneous interpretation.
The child in the second plane of development wants to know the laws that govern our universe. We, as AMI guides, must offer children the keys to discovering these laws and their function within the cosmic order.
Physics and chemistry study how matter works and interacts with energy. We are all made of matter and knowing how it works helps to understand everything we see around us.
This short course aims to give a basic review of the main concepts in physics and chemistry, provide an overview of the Montessori legacy in this field and provide resources and practical ideas for working with energy, machines and matter. All this is a good complement to the curriculum offered in the AMI courses.
These 16 hours of the course also aim to initiate further meetings and courses on physics and chemistry and their role in cosmic education.
The course is designed for AMI guides of children ages 6 to 12. In order to obtain the official certificate of this AMI refresher course, you must have the AMI 6-12 diploma, and be a member of AMI or any other AMI affiliated organisation.
A virtual meeting will be organized before the sessions, providing material and significant pre-readings for the course.
During the 16 telematic hours, theoretical classes are combined with practical activities related to the materials provided.
Active participation is intended to share difficulties and solutions for the implementation of the proposals.
Full attendance and active participation in all classes are required.
At the end of the course, you get the official certificate of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) of the refresher course in physics and chemistry.
