The Montessori wooden educational puzzle consists of 8 tiles depicting tree leaves, which should be placed in the corresponding holes in the base. Our original graphics depict some of the most common species: birch, oak, maple or linden. An integral part of the puzzle are educational cards containing basic information about a particular tree, supplemented with interesting facts.

How many times have you wondered on a walk: what kind of tree is that? You pass it every day, it looks familiar…. just what is its name! We come to your aid! With our jigsaw puzzle, you will learn about these beautiful and majestic plants in the form of a great game. 3 game scenarios, prepared for toddlers as well as older children, will make you feel like real naturalists.

 

The Leaves puzzle allows to shape, first of all: concentration, memory, logical thinking, visual perception, eye-hand coordination and small motor skills. Did you know that:
  1. Concentration is the ability to focus on something specific. It can be a task being performed, a particular object or instructions given by a teacher. Concentration ensures children’s proper development and is essential at each stage of their education.
  2. The mind of a young child is like a sponge. Several-year-olds absorb a lot of new words and information in no time at all, which allows them to familiarise themselves with their surroundings. In order for this process to run smoothly, continuous memory training is essential.
  3. Logical thinking allows one to analyze situations, draw conclusions and develop possible solutions based on the information gathered. This is one skill that can be difficult for a child to achieve. Why practice logical thinking? Because it is essential at every stage of our lives.
  4. Visual perception allows children to get to know and understand the world around them. It is also essential for further education when learning to read, write and count. When playing with several items with different pictures, the child has to focus his eyes on them and make an assessment of what he sees, such as colors, shapes, similarities and differences. This is an introduction to more advanced analysis, which, among other things, forms the basis for logical thinking.
  5. Visuomotor coordination enables precision of movement. It is essential for daily activities – from eating, dressing, drawing or writing independently to physical activity. Eye-hand coordination additionally requires training of the child’s hands and fingers, i.e. fine motor skills.
  6. Small motor skills are the precise movements of the hands and fingers, such as squeezing, stroking, kneading and grasping. It is essential in many areas of a child’s life and the achievement of independence (e.g. brushing teeth, buttoning up, eating, writing).

Fun proposal

Four seasons, or discovering the trees around us – suggested age: 4+

Put the puzzle together, look at the individual leaves – try to remember what they look like and what tree they come from. On a walk try to look for trees from the puzzle, bring at least one leaf each home. Then compare the leaves you brought with those painted on the wooden tiles and read the information about the tree. Note where birch, linden or chestnut trees grow in your neighborhood. During your walks, look at them carefully: in spring, pay attention to what the buds look like, young leaves and when the trees bloom; in summer, see how big the leaves are, what the bark feels like, what the whole tree looks like from a distance; in autumn, check what color the leaves turn and what the fruits of these trees look like; in winter, pay attention to what the trees look like without leaves, what shape they have (for example, spherical, columnar or umbrella-shaped, see if there is a nest hidden among the branches and a hollow among the trunk. spherical, columnar or umbrella-shaped), see if there is a nest hidden among the branches and a hollow in the trunk.

Tips:

  • Establish a herbarium. It can be a notebook or binder with clipped sheets. Dry the leaves you brought and stick them to a sheet of paper with clear tape, describe the specimen you took (name of species and date and place of collection). On the following sheets of paper, make notes on your observations. You can also try drying the flowers, colorful autumn leaves and fruits.
  • Look for trees that are not described in our puzzle. Take pictures of them (e.g., whole tree, bark, branches, flowers or fruits) and bring some leaves home. Check books or the Internet to see what the genre is. Describe the tree together and add the dried leaves to the herbarium.
