Geography comes to life in this cardboard floor puzzle, featuring 51 pieces cut to the shape of each state or region. This colorful map is 2 feet x 3 feet when assembled, with extra-thick jigsaw pieces and an "Easy-Clean" surface that keeps it looking new.
Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
Find the puzzle piece that shows your state, and talk about where in the state your home is. What picture is shown for your state? Why do you think this object is associated with your state?
Work on the puzzle with 1-3 friends, giving each player all the puzzle pieces of one color. (Any leftover puzzle pieces can be divided among the players.)
Turn the puzzle pieces over so the white sides are up. Can you guess any of the states from their shapes alone? (Watch out--a few of the pieces have more than one state--extra points if you can name all the states on one piece from memory!)
