Puzzle map of Japan – Nienhuis Montessori
Through sensorial activities with the puzzle maps, children begin to build their knowledge of the worlds geography. The Nienhuis Montessori Japan puzzle map introduces the geographical structure of Japan and can be used as a puzzle, but also the shapes of each region can be touched, traced on paper and coloured in. Another common exercise is to compare the size of each region and to learn about its prefectures, which each have their own colour, as well as the geographical location of the region in the country.
The silk screened puzzle map is entirely made of wood and is laser cut, which ensures accuracy, and a perfect fit of pieces that have to be replaced with those from the spare parts collection. Specially designed knobs on each puzzle piece are positioned on the location of the capitals of each region..
This material is suitable for children aged 5 years and up.
