The World and Continents Bundle includes seven continent sets and the World set; a total of 8 pin maps and 1147 flags with 2 pieces of foam backboard and plastic corners. The plastic corners hold the pin map in place while it is pinned. When you want to use a different map, simply slide off the four corner protectors and place the new map on the foam sheet. They are perfect for a small space because the maps take up very little space when they are not mounted to the foam sheet.
Children will use these maps throughout their school career. They are fun for all ages. Children will learn geography when they are three, by using them as a play mat for the miniature animals, plants and people, while grandparents can use them with the grandkids.
Pinning the maps will quickly become a favorite activity. Children will especially enjoy pinning the 23 volcanoes and 4 waterfalls. Using the complete set of maps children will learn the names, capitals and flags of 196 countries around the world, which include the European microstates and small island nations. They will also learn science topics such as the types of forests around the world, salt and fresh water lakes, and plate tectonics.
Pin maps and flags are printed on heavy 14 pt. cardstock. The flags are cut and ready for you to assemble! For more details, please see product information in the FAQ.
