|From The Publisher*||A delightful 500-piece jigsaw puzzle featuring the midcentury-style art from the cult hit Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers of Space, plus a reference poster with more engaging activities.|
Puzzles are a unique and fun way to teach children important skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and hand-eye coordination. Now they can discover the solar system and outer space with this 500-piece puzzle based on Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers of Space. A matching poster includes a search-and-find activity with science vocabulary and proper nouns (such as satellites, comets, International Space Station, and NASA Curiosity Rover), making this a fun way for kids ages seven and up to learn more about space.
