Recently at Indian Harbour Montessori, Room 22, our 5th and 6th Graders, took a blank Styrofoam head as pictured below, signed each of their names and sent it with Captain Blohm who works offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Once on board the ship, Styrohead was placed in the ship's ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) which went to a depth of 7,050 feet. In the process, Styrohead shrank because of the pressure, as pictured. The students took measurements before and after Styrohead's trip and will be charting and graphing the results. We'd like to thank Captain Blohm for helping us out with [...]
What I Learned from the Sumerian Team Project Experience (as reported by 5th and 6th graders at Indian Harbour Montessori on team evaluation forms for the Sumerian Brochure Project using the Microsoft Surface RT Tablets that were recently purchased by the MPTO) I learned a lot about the Sumerians and how to work as a team. I learned that if we split up the work then we could get things done better and faster. I learned a lot about our ancient ancestors and how they lived, and learned some things about the surface that even I didn’t know. We learned a [...]

Peace Day 2013 Indian Harbour Montessori had a Peace Day celebration last Friday, October 18th. Students 3-6 years at IHM have been learning about peace and other cultures since the first day of school. As a part of our Peace Day Celebration, students sang peace songs, created peace artwork, and alongside their parents prepared and tasted authentic foods from the culture they represented. Teachers and spectators enjoyed watching the children parade as they represented different nations. Maria Montessori believed that “establishing peace is the work of education.” With this in mind, Indian Harbor Montessori focuses on helping adults and children alike [...]
What treasures can be found here? Florida’s National Parks are home to fossils of many prehistoric species. There’s the saber-toothed cat and the carcharodon megalodon shark, (once stretching as big as a bus); there are animals such as the giant woolly mammoth, the cave bear, cave hyena, and the cave lion, as well. To promote awareness and stewardship of fossils—the record of evolving life on a dynamic planet—and foster greater appreciation of their value to science and education, Indian Harbour Montessori will join the National Park Service (NPS) and the American Geological Institute (AGI) in celebrating National Fossil Day on October, [...]
