Using puzzles to teach geography can help students learn relative size of countries, learn locations of countries, learn capitals of countries,put the countries of continents in correct location, and learn major bodies of water in a country. This could be used as a station in a classroom as students are learning about a continent. As students interact with the puzzle they will become more familiar with the countries of a continent.
