Is Less Than 10% Accuracy OK?
The average individual can only place eighteen of the world's 193 countries. But wouldn't it be nice if he could locate all 193? Unlike other world puzzles, The Global Puzzle has pieces shaped like individual countries. Instead of matching color to color, you must be able to work each country piece into the bordering countries, making a lasting mental connection as you go.
That's Better, Much Better!
After completing this puzzle, people, on average, were able to identify 103 countries, an increase of 400%. After completing the puzzle a second time, they were, on average, able to identify 130 countries.
Lots and Lots of Pieces
The Global Puzzle includes all 193 countries and their capitals, all fifty states of the US, and all thirteen territories and provinces of Canada; 600 pieces in all! In this current version, some of the incredibly small pieces are grouped together and the larger countries and oceans do interconnect like your traditional jigsaw puzzle. Also helpful information about each country is printed on the oceans. And, because so many families have asked for it, this most recent version does have the solution on the box, but we would encourage you to use it only as a last resort.
Clearly, there is more to geography than just country placement, but nothing is more fundamental. If you are looking for a tremendously effective way to teach this subject, you'll want The Global Puzzle. 600 pieces, 36 x 24 inches assembled.
Beware of Bumps
These are small pieces and if your family is anything like ours, you probably can't expect your puzzle to survive set-up without being jiggled, shaken, bumped or even moved. The best remedy is simple - do the oceans first, then put in the countries. You'll still have to reset pieces, but it won't be nearly as big a deal with this approach!
