    Well, im about 5 years out of high school, and i was able to do it with no problem. It does make you wonder just how many American citizens, even those in adulthood, cant piece together that map.

    We actually have a real puzzle like that we bought at a yard sale.

    My son likes doing puzzles, so I figured he might as well learn something while doing them.

    All of my five grandchildren learned to do that before they were three. And on the same puzzle to boot.

    A worthwhile teaching tool. Every kid should have one.

    Whee, that was fun! Thanks for killing 10 minutes of my "work" day today!

    I'll bet they would have a hard time naming all fifty states,

    When I got to my last piece, Monanta, it wouldn't click into place.

    All the others clicked in.

    Is there a time out, or something of the sort?

    Piece of cake! And I've been out of high school for 32 years. Of course, having ten kids and homeschooling helps.

    May or may not be the problem: you can only place states next to states you have already placed.

    Know Your World Geography Game

    Just spent some quality time with this one. In two tries, I made it to level 11, 410,000 pts, and an IQ of 120. Some of those get pretty durn hard there in the later rounds!

    I'd hate to make it a high school grad test in our building.
