National Geographic pulls together top-notch photographers, researchers, writers, and educators to create this phenomenal atlas perfect for upper elementary, middle school, and high school students.
From learning all about the earth including how to read maps, the earth’s physical systems, and the people that inhabit the earth, students will get an overall view of our world. Then each continent is broken down into sections including maps, climate, population, and a particular focus for each continent.
The end of the book includes photos of each country’s flag, metric conversions, world facts, and a glossary. This world atlas is completely comprehensive and is the perfect addition to the classroom or a home library.
Some of my favorite sections include the section on the Amazon Rain Forest and the deforestation caused mainly by the increase of land needed for cattle ranching. I have always loved reading maps so looking at the various maps in the book and dreaming about traveling to those countries was fun as a child as well as now. I also loved looking at all the flags and trying to decide why the country chose that particular or color scheme.
This book is current and offers a hands-on experience instead of looking something up on the internet. I think students tend to retain information longer if they can actually hold and look at pages of a map or photographs of a city. Even though the book is paperback, it includes heavy, glossy paper and will withstand numerous page-turns.
