Thermic Tablets

This sensorial lesson is designed for 3 to 6-year-old children to help isolate and refine their thermic sense, or sense of temperature.

The video lesson guides the child to feel the surface of the thermal tablets with their wrist and match the tablets with their pair. The tablets are made of different textures and materials, and the child is instructed to differentiate
them based on their temperature.

What are Montessori Thermic Tablets?

The Thermic Tablets material comprises a wooden box containing six pairs of tablets made of different materials. The materials of the thermic tablets are typically made of:

  1. cork (warmest5A
  2. glassA
  3. feltA
  4. woodA
  5. SteelA
  6. Slate (coolest5

The child learns to identify and match with the exact pair using their hands. They can also arrange the tablets from warmest to coolest by touching them with their hands.

Thermic tablets are a significant activity for children as there is no outside force causing the tablets to differ in
temperature.
