Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 14 December 2021

Learning to recognise identities is an easy and attractive assignment. The identity is shown by the correspondence between the size of the cavities and the cylinders which fit into them. You can recognise the identity of the two extremes most easily. It is easiest to perceive identities between contrasts. Perceiving identities between objects that are nearly alike requires a greater refinement of the eye.
