National Geographic – Atlas Map Puzzles

leave a comment »

I recently came across these online jigsaw puzzles from the National Geographic Magazine stable (I’ll be returning to more of their resources for kids in the future).

Choose a map, then watch it break up into jigsaw puzzle pieces. Click the main picture, then you have to rebuild it against the clock.
