In Montessori education, Exercises of Practical Life constitute one of the four areas of activities in the prepared environment. These exercises are purposeful activities that mimic everyday tasks such as sweeping, dusting, and washing dishes. These tasks aid the child in adapting to their community, developing self-control, and fostering a sense of contributing to the social unit. The child’s intellect and personality grow in an integrated manner as they perform these tasks, which engage both body and mind.
