Fun Atlas Jigsaw Puzzles

National Geographic may just be my favorite website on the web. Every time I visit the site I find something that I didn't see on my previous visit. Today was not an exception to that pattern.

National Geographic's Atlas Jigsaw Puzzles challenge players to assemble the continents as quickly as they can. There are puzzles based on every continent. The puzzles are based on political and physical maps. In all there are twenty-three puzzles.

Applications for Education
National Geographic's Atlas Jigsaw Puzzles could be a fun way for students to sharpen their knowledge of world geography one puzzle at a time.
