    This 144 page atlas has over 100 maps created especially for students that may not be as detailed as maps in other atlases, but when combined with other aspects in this book, provide students with a well-rounded look of the world. Like most atlases, political and physical maps of the world and the continents are included, but this one doesn't label as many cities or landmarks. What's great about this atlas is that parts of it have an encyclopedia feel to it, with over sixty full-color photographs of people, plants, landmarks, and animals native to different countries and regions. There are thematic sections on environmental hotspots, refugees and conflicts, diffusion of popular culture, and more. 50 charts and graphs display interesting data and statistics, and there is a section colorfully displaying flags of all 192 countries. Includes updated country flags and fact boxes, web links, glossary of terms, thematic & place-name indexes. This is a great basic atlas for students and is full of interesting information from countries and cultures around the world. sc.

    Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.

    Wow, this book provides tons of open-ended activities and forms that are great for supplementing any geography study and target a variety of ages, abilities, and learning styles. Reproducible maps and worksheets are provided for all the continents and countries (many of the countries are lumped together in regional maps), including a few entire world maps and worksheets. Arranged by continent, each continental section begins with a political and physical map of the continent, along with worksheets designed to give students an overview of the continent and guide them in mapping geographical and political features of that area. Then, regional maps and country-specific worksheets are included that prompt students to research and map features like the capital, current population, major religions, climate, major resources, bordering nations, and so much more. The worksheets for most countries are fairly identical, so students will be researching the same types of information for each country. The information itself is not included in the book, so students will need a reference like an atlas, encyclopedia, or the Internet to complete the worksheets and mapping. Over fifty maps are included in all, which cover the whole world and identify mountains, rivers, and lakes with hand-drawn illustrations, but do not label the features. Additional mapping activity ideas, vocabulary lists, and teaching ideas for using the worksheets are also included in the book. With maps to label and informative worksheets to complete for every country, this useful, completely reproducible book is a perfect supplement to any geography study. 352 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    The sister book to the National Geographic World Atlas for Young Explorers, this atlas uses the same colorful style of maps and comprehensive coverage that make these atlases the perfect easy reference for young students. All fifty states are given a two-page spread, with full-color physical maps showing major highways, national parks, cities, mountains, lakes, reservations, all the major industries around the state, deserts, rivers, borders, and more. There is also a brief description of the state, along with state facts and some interesting trivia. A two-page spread is also given to the territories administered by the US. The atlas begins with ten thematic spreads covering how to use the atlas, the physical United States, the natural environment, natural hazards, the political United States, population, immigration and minority populations, potential geographic areas where alternative energy can be used, and Washington D.C. A list of facts and figures, a glossary and an index round out the atlas. Full of nothing other than National Geographic standard photographs from each region, locator maps and color coding are used to make this atlas more accessible to all users.
