Summer's here! Time for a family vacation, time to bundle the kids into the back of the mini-van and head out on the highway. Time to follow in the footsteps of our pioneer ancestors and explore America! Where will you go? Up to New England to relive the beginnings of our nation? Down to the Florida beaches? Out along Route 66 into the land of roadside dinosaurs and the world's biggest ball of string? Will you look Mount Rushmore in the eyes? Will you ride a donkey into the Grand Canyon? Will you see the stars in Hollywood? Wherever you go, whatever you do, always remember those words of cautious wisdom that start every great trip: "does anybody remember where Dad put his keys?"
This large magnetic play map will let curious young minds learn the names and positions of the 50 states, as well as many of the flags, symbols, landmarks, and animals associated with each. Having a good grasp of national geography is essential for understanding US history, and encourages citizens to explore their national community. Place the magnetic piece onto its corresponding color and shape on the map, or for a bigger challenge, map the states on your refrigerator or any other metal surface. Give your child a head-start on learning geography and expand their national awareness with the USA Magnetic Puzzle Map! Makes a great activity during road trips or extended car rides.
