Make inexpensive map puzzles to help your kids learn geography.
Step 1. Paste any map (world, country, state, county) onto a sheet of poster board.
Step 2. Allow to dry.
Step 3. Cut into puzzle-shaped pieces.
For a map of the United States, cut along state borders. If you’re using a Canadian map, cut along the various provinces. And for a map of a continent, for example – Africa, cut along the country lines.
You could also hand draw a map of your local neighborhood. Then have your child color in the various houses and buildings before you glue it to the poster board. This will help them get to know their immediate environment. And may help them find their way back home – if needed.
