One of our biggest jigsaws, this brightly coloured puzzle shows a colourful map of Great Britain and Ireland, illustrated with famous landmarks, natural features, food, animals and much more. Obviously it will help your child's basic geography skills, and they will become familiar with the shape and landmarks of our country, including the location of most of our major cities. It will also help with your child's literacy skills, as there is plenty to look for and talk about. You could ask your child whether Stonehenge is in the north or south of the country? What is the name of the sea between England and France? What is so special about the cat on the Isle of Man? Who is the famous character shown near Nottingham? How many animals can you see on the map? How can people cross the sea from the mainland of Great Britain to Ireland or France? The giant poster includes a guide to the many features illustrated, as well as mini guides showing some of the famous landmarks in the capital cities of London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast and Dublin. With 150 pieces, this will appeal to slightly older children, (suggested age 5 to 11 years) while teaching them about the geography of Great Britain and Ireland. The finished puzzle measures 88cms x 61cms, and the additional poster measures 96cms x 68cms.
