The children will enjoy the challenge of pinning Europe because
it has more pin flags than most continent maps. They will easily recognize the boot shape of Italy and see its two
historic volcanos, Mt. Vesuvius and Mt. Etna. They need to search for the stars of Europe’s six microstates, which are
only as big as their capitals. When they
find the Strait of Gibraltar, they will see the narrow waterway which ships use
to travel from the Atlantic Ocean into the Mediterranean Sea. At the top of the map, children will find
Iceland and picture the cold northern tundra, which is beautifully shaded
purple and white. In Iceland, they will
be fascinated to pin and learn about the historic Laki Volcano, which caused
the continent of Europe to have “the year without a summer” in 1783.
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.
