Dawn, Laura,any other Brits, can you recommend

Recommended Posts

We have just had great fun with The Usborne Sticker Atlas of Britain and Ireland.




We just did fifteen minutes (one region), twice a week for a few weeks, but we chatted about the places we were stickering and all learned a bit. Starting from this week, we are going to use a puzzle that we got from M&S - it's pictorial on one side (famous places) and counties on the other.

We used a lot of jigsaws for geography. It was really easy to get a hold of jigsaw maps of Great Britain and Ireland at car boot sales and in charity shops. They take up so much space I guess people (and charity shops!) wanted rid of them. We never paid more than a pound. Our two loved them and got to know the regions and countries really well.

We have also travelled a great deal around the UK and I try to ensure they know where we are on the map during our travels. I really recommend getting membership to the National Trust or English Heritage when you are in the UK. It is an incentive to travel and you get a great map.

I am Scottish and so the English regions were rather a mystery to me until I was an adult.
