Teachers include a series of exercises that aid the normal development of physiological movements, such as walking, breathing, and speech. Such education will allow children to care for their own practical needs.
Montessori divided motor education into two corresponding parts: free gymnastics and educational gymnastics.
Free gymnastics incorporates required and directed exercises, such as marching, and free games with balls, hoops, and kites.
Educational gymnastics foster independence and give order to a child's movement. It includes caring for plants and animals and the practical life exercises.
