D has been using her customized Timberdoodle kit for her 8th grade year. I want to share with you today one of the fun items included in her math component, Extreme Dot to Dot: Around the World. If you are not familiar with Dot to Dot books we are huge fans and our family has completed a variety of them. They are so great for increasing mental focus and we find them fun and relaxing as well. I am so thankful for the variety and selection that Timberdoodle offers!
This particular book is geared for students ages 8+ or 3rd grade and up. The 32 puzzles range from 400 dots to 2200 dots so the time frame and difficulty vary from puzzle to puzzle. In this book, you connect the dots to reveal buildings, landscapes and memorable sights from all around the world, hence the name. I really appreciate that the puzzles do not give away the ending from the beginning, they are a mystery until complete. And there is a handy dandy key in the back of the book that identifies each puzzle along with fun details and facts.

While I don't want to give away all the featured buildings, landscapes and memorable sights in this book (some mystery is nice), I did want to show you what a few completed puzzles look like so you have an idea of what the book contains.

And remember, these books aren't just for kids! I have enjoyed them over the years as well (see my review on Dot-to-Dot Philadelphia
for proof). These books are inexpensive, fun and make a great addition to any homeschool curriculum!
