4D City Scape Time Puzzle - Berlin

4D City Scape Time Puzzle – Berlin This puzzle recreates Berlin’s historic skyline, not only in three-dimensions, using scale-model buildings, but also along the fourth dimension of time – spanning over 700 years of architectural history. The puzzle includes 138 building replicas that depict Berlin’s Skyline as it appeared as far back as 1292, through to 2006 with the completion of Hauptbahnhof. The puzzle includes such iconic structures as the Marienkirche, Friedrichstraße, Checkpoint Charlie, and Kollhoff Tower. In 1961 you replicate history as you build the Berlin Wall using 60 replica pieces. In 1989, you remove the wall as you re-join East and West Berlin together. The base of the puzzle is a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle that forms the city’s street layout and geography. During the process of constructing the base map, one learns about Berlin’s neighborhoods, streets, museums, and more. Once the puzzle base is complete, the vertical building of Berlin’s Skyline begins by placing 138 buildings and structures in chronological time sequence. This is done by following the enclosed 4D Time Poster.

The first thing you see when looking at any puzzle is the photo or illustration of the completed puzzle. On choosing, remember that the image should have some educational value but also be something the child can relate to. If the image is familiar to the child or fulfills the educational objective (like learning colours or naming objects), the experience of completing the puzzle will be all the more enjoyable, satisfying and productive. The image should be easily recognizable so the child can identify it as something they see around them in their everyday life. It should also have distinguishable features to help them decide where to put the piece so that it ends up in the right place.
