Modern Times

Modern Times A very difficult color-matching puzzle. The objective is to align the wheels such that, as shown in the picture, each wheel has a common touching wood color (note in the picture, for example, how the bottom two wheels have the darkest wood type touching at the edge of the wheel). The puzzle is made more difficult by the fact that some areas of each wheel have no cog teeth, affecting the way that each rotates relative to the others. The wheels can only be turned by way of the smaller geared wheels that protrude from the edges of the puzzle. Made in ten laser-cut woods, acrylic, and stainless steel by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks.

While there are a plethora of references regarding the benefits of reading books, playing games, etc., this article focuses on the value of wooden jigsaw puzzles as a catalyst for learning in early childhood.
