Did you know the average individual knows where only 18 of the world’s 193 countries are located?
A Broader View decided they wanted to do something to improve this statistic, so they created The Global Puzzle, a unique 600-piece puzzle that has proven to increase its users’ geography knowledge by an average of 472% after completing the puzzle only one time.
How The Puzzle Works
The Global Puzzle is an outstanding geography aid because?the pieces are actually shaped like the countries, which means you have to figure out where countries are located in order to complete the puzzle!?
(Note that some small countries share a puzzle piece and some large countries are spread over more than one piece.)
The Global Puzzle includes:
All 193 countries and their capitals
All 50 states of the U.S. and their capitals
All 13 territories and provinces of Canada and their capitals
In addition, the puzzle also includes dozens of geography facts about the countries printed within the oceans’ borders.
This version of The Global Puzzle is geographically current as of 2010. Three feet wide, 600 pieces. For ages 9 and up.
