They're not perfect now (though I was thrilled to realise that they're Nienhuis ones!) but I'm giving them lots of love, cleaning them up, repainting & replacing the knobs and making new pieces when needed (originally with foam-board but I made some clay ones yesterday which might work really well) & yesterday I was able to present the first one: The Continents World Map Puzzle. Yippee!
The Hemisphere Orange activity was a pre-curser to presenting the map, and here the boys are colouring in their own maps & using push-pins to trace around the Hemispheres.
During school-time I showed Lovely an extension using a control sheet that I had created (tracing the puzzle pieces and dinner plate for the hemispheres ;) and then we did a few 3-part lessons (3 continents at a time). So cool!
