Practical life in a Montessori school is designed to develop independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility. Practical life activities are different by age range and include self care, cooking, cleaning, and gardening. At McGuffey, each classroom has their own garden in their own outdoor classroom.

In Practical Life, Lower Elementary students harvested their garden and made pizza. First graders made dough, second graders made sauce, and third graders made mozzarella. The next day, everyone assembled their pizza in time for lunch. It was a delicious undertaking!
