Jigsaw was believed to first produced around 1760 by John Spilsbury . He was
a teacher in Lodon. He tried to produce a tool to teach his student how the
England country look like.
Then, he came up with a great tool which was a
seperate wood blocks stick together side by side.
Each block represents
each part of the country. This way his students will be able to see the
whole picture of the country and seperate it in piece to understand each
This idea was rapidly widespreaded. The private companies interested to his
idea and start to develop it into other type of big pictures such as the
whole world map, the house with many rooms until they became the jigsaw
puzzles as they look nowaday.
Now you know that the jigsaw puzzle was first built as a learning tool for
geography students. Thanks Mr. Spilsbury.
