Unique, Original and Handmade Puzzles
This unique Montessori Apple nomenclature puzzle is created from original drawings and designs by Puzzle Heads Educational Products. This apple puzzle was created in response to requests from Montessori schools for a fall and harvest themed puzzle. However, the learning features incorporated in this puzzle are equally valuable in any educational environment from preschools to homeschools and everything in between.
How are the Puzzles Made
As with all Puzzle Heads Originals products, each one begins as hand drawn artwork created in our studios. Once each image is perfected, it is transferred to silkscreen stencils for use in the printing process. Each and every puzzle is silkscreened by hand using non toxic paints and finishes. Once printed, each and every puzzle is cut by hand and each piece carefully sanded to silky smoothness.
Knobs used on the pieces encourage the development of the pincer grip, in preparation for holding a pencil and learning to write.
These puzzles are constructed from solid Baltic Birch plywood, not pressboard or Masonite. As a result, they will never get rounded corners or “fraying” on the edges. You are purchasing an heirloom quality product that withstands rugged classroom use and will last through many hand-me downs at home. Full color 3 part nomenclature cards available here.
- 10 knobbed pieces (some parts have two pieces, like the Leaf, Skin, Flesh)
- Pieces cut to match the Apple nomenclature card sets (Skin, Flesh, Core, Ovary, Seeds, Leaf, Blossom End, Stem)
- Approximate Size: 9-1/4″ x 10-3/4″ (23.5cm x 27.5cm)
