The century chain brings periods of time in handy and visible form. Each ball on the century chain marks one year. Hereby the children will be helped with the colours of Montessori to facilitate the way of counting. The green pearls stand for the single years of a century. The blue pearls for a decade and the red ones for one century. The century chains can be linked endlessly to present more centuries and milleniums. You will find 4 different templates formed according to your own demands. Children like creating these templates. Examples for using: The century chain is hung up. More chains can be linked to show longer periods of time. The side with the red pearl marks the end of the century and shows to the right side when it is hung up. Historical, biological and other periods of time could be presented, for example the history of a town, inventions, backgrounds on public or religious holidays, evolution... Controlling success: The children simply count the pearls arriving to the wished year supported by the known Montessori colours.
