Floor State Map Puzzles - Great Teaching Tool For Geography Fun.

Updated on January 15, 2010

Being a homeschooling mother of two, forces me to stretch my brain muscles and find ways to keep learning interesting and fun; for both myself and my toddlers as well!

Such was the case when it came time to teach my four year old the states and capitals of the U.S.

With the aid of books and flash cards, I was pretty effective at helping her memorize the state names and their corresponding capitals.

Nevertheless, It was still my mission to bring the states to life for her. And since most children seem to retain information far better when they use their sense of touch in correlation with their sense of sound and sight, I thought what better way to stimulate those senses, than by purchasing a floor state map puzzle.

* Melissa & Doug's Floor USA Map.

This 51-piece floor puzzle is perfect for parents looking to start-jump their toddler's knowledge about geography.

The over-sized pieces are just perfect for small hands and the bright colors are extremely inviting.

In addition, each piece is colorfully illustrated with pictures symbolizing what iconicized each particular state.

Each capital is clearly labeled as well, and the pieces are durable and easy to assemble.

You will be amazed at how fast your toddler learns and memorizes both the states and capitals, just by putting this floor puzzle together.

It's fun, it's educational, and it's well worth the money.
