“Excite your children with hands-on geography fun!

Pin It! Maps are large Montessori pin maps on foam board with colorful name and national flags. The complete student set includes 8 pin maps, 30 control maps, and 1,147 flags.

Each continent has four control maps that are labeled with one topic: country names, cities, national flags and land & water forms.

In the past they have been limited to Montessori schools because of their high cost, but this is an affordable set for homeschoolers! Children will have fun pinning 196 National flags – every country in the world.

But they won’t stop there!  They will pin the names of countries, cities, oceans, rivers, and mountains.

These maps can be used for all ages. Children can start with the seven continent flags and work their way towards pinning 331 cities around the world. This set even includes name flags for four waterfalls and 23 volcanoes!”

“I really need to be more disciplined, though. I should get up early before the kids, and I really should exercise more.”

Ah, yes. I know the sentiment well.

It’s the word that sucks the bliss right out of living, that makes us–and our kids–feel like “less than.”

Should.

Welcome to this week’s giveaway–sponsored by Home Science Tools.

From Home Science Tools:

“Homeschooling parents choose to give their kids the incomparable gift of their time, attention, and abilities. The return? Parents are present as their children light up with understanding and connect concepts.

Shared experiences make learning fun and engaging, and strengthen family bonds.

When families come together to discover the fascinating worlds of science – from infinitely small cells to gigantic galaxies – they create warm memories that kids and parents want to repeat and build upon.”
