Puzzles! Our family always enjoys a good puzzle. We jumped at the chance to use GEO Puzzles as part of our homeschooling geography plans. Most pieces are shaped like the country, state, or province they represent, making this a fantastic way to not only learn the country names but their shapes as well. I think these are the best geography puzzles I have ever seen.
These puzzles are perfect for all kinds of learning: hands-on learning by feeling the shapes of the countries, seeing the relationships between bordering countries for visual learners, and then physically putting the pieces together for some great kinesthetic learning.
These puzzles pieces are thick and durable for little hands but also labeled plainly for all ages (including this grown-up). The colorful design makes putting these puzzles together very appealing. The box says these puzzles are for ages 4 and up. My teens learned a lot by putting these puzzles together but so did I!
Do you know all the countries that make up the former U.S.S.R.? Can you put all the countries of Africa together with no guessing? Are you sure about the countries of Latin America or Asia? If not, these GEO Puzzles will help build your family’s knowledge of the world we live in.
The GEO Toys website has Teacher Resource Guides for each puzzle. These are multi-page pdf files that you can download with additional information and activities. The GEO Puzzles can be a valuable part of your history or geography curriculum. Learning will be fun and more like a game, a geographic game.
Puzzles available for:
- Latin America
- Africa and Middle East
- United States and Canada
