Three preschool friends worked together to create this artistic rendition of the planisphere* map. This is just one of the puzzle maps in the Montessori Geography Cabinet. The others are of the continents and the puzzle pieces in those are the countries that belong to the specific continent.
To make this map the children took out the pieces, traced them onto big paper, and colored them in accordingly. Watercolor is brushed on for the oceans.
*A planisphere is a representation of the circles of the sphere on a plane.
