Wow, a geography puzzle with a history tutorial built in! The 4-D 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!

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
This is a great puzzle for my adhd son, however, I had to complete the first level and he did the top portion. Great for the whole family.
I have one child in particular who is squirrely and unfocused. He needs a high level of practice and careful attention and patience while using his hands. If he had it his way it probably wouldn't be in the pursuit of geography and history but activities like this are such a lovely addition. I see his face light up when he gets to do something constructive and tactile. This is such a great example because not only is their a logic piece in putting together a puzzle, spatial development and so forth, he is able to commit to memory important landmarks and his country. He really enjoyed putting it together and it will be great to pull out and revisit for practice.
I was bery pleased with the puzzle. I bought it to accompany my childrens history, "America The Beautiful," this year. The details and structure take it well beyond a typical puzzle. I am excited to utilize it during our lessons.
Looks great, but we haven't finished it yet.
He put this together in one day. It took awhile but he did learn a lot while putting it together.
