Puzzles that Make Geography Fun

Puzzles that Make Geography Fun | Developing Spatial Literacy | Scoop.it

"Ever since London mapmaker and engraver John Spilsbury pasted one of his maps on a sheet of hardwood and cut it into small pieces with a marquetry saw (circa 1760), jigsaw puzzles have been used as a tool to teach children geography. Today, they are still a fun way for kids to learn more about their own country as well as the nations of the world."
