    "My town is inside my state, which is inside the US which is inside North America..." Genius! Great to teach geography to young kids.

    These nesting map jars help teach 1st graders about geography and where they come from. The biggest one is the entire world, then North America, then the United States, and finally, whatever state you live it, followed by their own individual house! They are nesting jars because each fits inside the previous one. Students will enjoy coloring their country, state, and world before attaching them to the outside of the cans. -dg
