4D Cityscape USA History Over Time Puzzle
Wow, a geography puzzle with a history tutorial built in! The 4D Cityscape USA History Over Time Puzzle is a unique 4-D puzzle that enables you to incorporate the fourth dimension of time as you piece together the growth of the USA.
Layers Help Illustrate the Passage of Time
The first layer of the USA History Over Time Puzzle is made up of 806 cardboard pieces and details the territorial expansions that occurred from 1783 to the 1900s. The second layer is made of sixty-five pieces of dense foam, including mountain layers, that are assembled on top of the territorial expansions. Follow the included time poster to assemble and learn the sequence and dates of statehood. This layer presents the United States as we currently know them.
Puzzle Includes 3-D Historical Buildings and Monuments
Finally, and probably a universal favorite, is placing USA History Over Time Puzzle’s ninety-three 3-D historical buildings and monuments in the puzzle in the order that they were constructed. First, snap the pieces free from their plastic bases. Then, using the 4-D Cityscape Time Poster, match the piece to the picture of the model, locate the correct placement on the puzzle, and insert the model into the foam base.
Watch History Unfold Before Your Eyes
Models include The Alamo, Fort Gibson, Hoover Dam, and many more. Fun, challenging, educational, and memorable, the 4D Cityscape USA History Over Time Puzzle allows your entire family to see the defining moments in history unfolding before your very eyes!
Note: While the manufacturer suggests this puzzle is best for ages 14+, we have found that any child with experience doing puzzles with a similar number of pieces will enjoy it. And even an inexperienced 10- to 12-year-old will find that his patience pays off as the impressive puzzle comes together!
