Taking a Summer Break from the Montessori Great Lessons
The last days of school are upon us, so the Great Lessons will take a rest until next fall. We’ll publish the last of those articles in time for school to start next August, along with links to find all the previous feature articles so you’ll be set for giving those inspirational lessons at the beginning of next school year.

CAN’T DECIDE WHAT TO GET?Here’s what some folks are giving…
Steve A. from CA just bought a 4” baculite and wrote: “Just wanted to let you know the fossil I just received is really awesome and typical of what I have purchased from your company. My students will really like this.”
Each of W. Maier’s 27 graduating students in MA will receive a 3” polished orthoceras. Using his discount, he saved almost $40 off his order and got the cost of his gifts down to less than $4 apiece.
Work in Progress
If you have been receiving our newsletter for a while the next section should look very familiar. Claudia and I started a new Montessori school last fall so some of our new project ideas for fossilicious have not gotten the energy they deserve.
The Fossil Coloring E-Book will likely be ready by fall.
This coloring book will be full size 8 ˝ x 11 in a pdf format. It will include scenes from all the various geologic times: Precambrian time through the Quaternary period. We are sorting through hundreds of drawings of original artwork used in illustrating our children's books. For a taste of this fossil coloring book follow this link. downloadable coloring Pages
Our new rock and mineral collections, Getting to Know Rocks and Minerals, are very near to completion. Most of the time spent on this project has been spent on writing lesson plans and creating materials to accompany the collections. These will be put into an ebook to go with each collection. These should be ready for shipping by mid-may at the latest. Watch the website for this exciting addition to our educational materials.
Look for these educational earth science collections in the future:
