Maria Montessori wrote, "To teach details is to bring confusion; to establish the relationship between things is to bring knowledge." Help our students explore and deepen their knowledge of math, science, art, literature and culture with a cross-curricular unit based on collaboration, creativity, and building confidence.
Pleasant Ridge Montessori students are diverse, curious, and caring.
Our students deserve every opportunity that students in wealthier school districts are given. The zip code they live in should not be a determining factor in providing high quality enriching academic opportunities.
We want our sixth graders to start the year with an exciting math and art based project that promotes inquiry, perseverance, and collaboration.
Imagine walking in to your 6th grade math class on the first day of school and seeing a Rubik’s cube sitting on each desk.
Our students will engage in valuable math practices while developing academic and emotional self-awareness during this project.
Students will set personal goals for accomplishing individual tasks and also for working collaboratively as they look for patterns in mathematical reasoning.
They will discover the joy of working toward and accomplishing goals that result in beautiful mosaics created out of Rubik’s cubes.
