Puzzle map in which the land is divided into Continents which are painted in the same colors as the Continental Globe.


This can be an individual or group presentation.


At first, the child may work with the map, merely as a puzzle, so that he can get familiar with the shapes.
When the child is familiar with the puzzle map, he learns the names of the Continents, two at a time using the "Three Period Lesson".
