The Sensorial Materials are often termed as Materialised Abstrations. These materials are manipulated in a concrete manner inorder to build understanding of abstract concepts. Through these materials Maria Montessori attempted to explain abstract comcepts using concrete materials. 

The child learns develops her brain through experiences in the environment and through providing the mind with inputs through the senses. The Sensorial exercises help to refine these senses by detailing every quality that can be perceived by the senses such as size, shape, texture, composition, loudness or softness, weight, volume, temperature, matching and so on.

The activities are grouped into various categories: Visual, Tactile, Gustatory, Olfactory, Stregonostic, Kinaesthetic, Auditory, Baric and Thermic. We supply materials in each of these categories, please do take a look.
