Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Gwen Fowler Real Estate, Inc 10307

We are still unpacking from our move over 2 years ago.  Last week Henry uncovered the Carmen Sandiego puzzle he had done with his kids 20 or so years ago.  As he was putting it together, he kept commenting on different things to do in each state.  

I was amazed when the puzzle came together, and Lake Keowee was on the map for our corner of South Carolina, but then so was Jesse Jackson.  Our corner of the world is unique as you can be in 3 states in about 30 minutes, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  

Lake Keowee on puzzle

Of course, Carmen Sandiego was not in our corner of South Carolina but it was fun to see all the places to see in each state and I have added a few to our future travels.

Let me know your state and I will send you a message with piece of the puzzle.

Hello Gwen - I am far too old to have had a close relationship with Carmen Sandiego but I do remember her influence as she spread the importance of geographic knowledge.  That remains important.  I bet finding that puzzle brought back many memories.

I love puzzles and that one is interesting with all the places of interest per state. I now live in Missouri.

Gwen, I remember this, thought it was a game, but is a bit fuzzy.

I have watched the re-runs with the grandkids, it never gets old and they have learned so much from that show.

Again Carmen Sandiego was after my time, but my daughter knew about it and had some lessons in grade school.  We never had the puzzle.

We watched it with the grandkids, all re-runs but it was so good to see the various places and things to do.  They are better at history and geography because of that show.

Hi Gwen- Carmen Sandiego was after my "kid" time but I do remember the name. That looks like a fun puzzle to put together!!  And I'm in Texas now.

What did it show for Arizona?  Have you been to Arizona?  It would probably be fun to visit most of the things noted for each and every state.
