Great Global Puzzle Challenge with Google Earth(TM) Reviews
This Great Global Puzzle Challenge with Google Earth is a wonderful, entertaining and educational gift. I purchased two to give to preteens and I had a terrible time giving them away....I was so enthralled with them, the pages were all but dog-eared by the time I gave them away. If you are looking for something to interest all ages, something to do together with your child, something to engage your child's mind that will also give you enjoyment and pleasure, this is THE gift...and the art inside is as good as the entertainment....highly recommended,
The overall concept of the book is great. It takes you to different places around the world using Google Earth as you are trying to solve a puzzle. There are things to look for in the book and on the maps you search. We just thought it would take more than one evening to accomplish. (You can solve the puzzle without finding all of the things you are asked to find in the book.) My son had fun doing it, but wish it would've taken a bit longer to solve.
the consists of instructions to download and use google earth. It contains a lot of puzzles like finding things,people,animals. N then finding the place in google earth and writing down the coordinates. At the end when we put all the coordinates together we can come to know the final place. Kids will definitely enjoy doing it. Kids who dont understand can be supervised by adults.
Both youngsters and adults will enjoy taking this computerized tour over the planet Earth and even venture out of this world. In this vibrantly graphically illustrated puzzle program, the reader is presented with the basic tools to navigate Google Earth. Then the puzzle challenge commences, with the different page spreads inviting searches for location, people, buildings, historical connections etc. The reader will journey to London and visit noted sites such as Big Ben or Buckingham Palace. Travel back to Ancient Rome and examine the history of the Colosseum, or leave Europe and visit the plains of Tanzania while examining the flora and fauna along the Ngorongoro Crater. Spot outstanding sites in Japan, Australia, Egypt, India, the Amazon as you google across the globe. History, Geography, Culture and other information are included with the sojourns. Finally once completing the google Earth tour, you can explore outer space and examine the planets, stars, and other galaxies. This global puzzle has a dynamic design, it will captivate youngsters and challenge them to explore the endless possibilities enabled by this program, it is incredibly awesome. It should be sitting beside the computer, as the computer operator navigates throughout the world.
