What our experts think
Our testers really enjoyed putting the pieces of the puzzle together to complete the finished picture of a map. The children found it interesting with having lots of places on the map and many of them completed the puzzle quite quickly. The map looks very busy which engaged all the children from the offset, and it was nice to see the children familiarise themselves with the geography of Great Britain.
The younger children needed a lot more help placing the puzzle pieces in the correct places as the busyness of the puzzle began to confuse them. However this has been a big learning curve as they were taking in lots of information which led to them to thinking about asking lots of questions about Great Britain.
Our testers also thought it was great for the adults to brush up on their geography knowledge with something quite simple. This puzzle kept some of the children engaged for over an hour and once finished they found it fun to find different places and buildings they already knew on the map.
