Geography puzzle games can make learning world geography fun. In the long process of putting the puzzle together, children learn about states and cities. They memorize countries and capitals. Puzzle games have many benefits: children learn about geography as they put the puzzle together and build motor, cognitive, language and problem solving skills.
There are geography puzzle games for children as young as 4 years old. Usually puzzles for older children include a larger number of smaller pieces and more complex color patterns. A geography puzzle can be good fun and boost your child's self confidence. For example, your child can work on a huge puzzle project that needs a whole floor to build. He or she can also glue the pieces together and hang the puzzle on a wall.
For older children (for ages 10and up), there is the United States of America Map 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle. This puzzle contains more pieces (1000 pieces), thus requires more skill to assemble. As kids spend hours putting the puzzle together, they learn to solve problems and to localize cities they may never have heard of before.
