    With more maps and more detail, this is Rand McNally's next step up from the Primary Atlas (#037759). The colorful atlas begins with an overview of map and globe terminology, followed by world maps: a physical map, political map, world land use map, and climate map. Next is a United States political map, plus a section on U.S. regions and a timeline of original settlers and explorers, before moving on to political maps for all seven continents. Simple map legends are included for each map, as well as interesting facts, captioned photos of regional people, animals, or landmarks, and simple timelines/charts/graphs.

    Colorful, appealing, and kid-friendly, the Classroom Atlas from Rand McNally is the next step up from the Junior Classroom Atlas (#007961) with more maps, more detail and more information. The book begins with a section defining map terminology. Next are nine world maps, each with a different emphasis: physical, political, climates, population density, and time zones, to name a few. Following are physical, political, and thematic maps for each continent. Thematic maps might showcase climate, environments, population, economic activities, natural hazards, or transportation. Each continent map section begins with an introduction that provides a historical and geographical overview of the continent, a timeline, and photos of people, places, animals, or landmarks from the continent. Additional maps are provided of the United States, Canada, and Mexico/Middle America. Graphs, charts, and "Did You Know?" fact boxes add visual interest and content. Interesting Top 10 lists (i.e. Largest lakes, longest rivers, most populated countries) are printed in the front and back inside cover. Index included. This is the 13th edition, copyright 2015 and includes North and South Sudan. 208 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Introduce your youngest students to geography with this atlas from Rand McNally. It begins with a section on basic map reading terminology and then proceeds through maps of the United States, World, and all seven continents. The maps featured are colorful, large-print political maps with shaded areas designating mountain ranges. Simple map legends are included for each map, and the margins contain small captioned photos of people, animals, or landmarks from the continents and countries. A basic fact or two about the continent is listed at the top of the page, with some maps containing a "map skills challenge." For example, the Africa map states, "Africa is the warmest continent," and the map skills challenge is "How many rivers can you find on the Africa map?" Index of countries included. 17 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

Each map contains a brief overview of the country/continent's climate and physical features. Also included on each map is a thumbnail world map, showing the particular continent or country highlighted in red. For added interest, each map has a fun text box with information about a particular animal and a challenge to find that animal on the map.

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    While this atlas comes in a mini size (4.25" x 5.3"), it still contains an impressive amount of maps and facts about the world. The first third of the book is composed of detailed maps of all the different continents and areas of the world. At first the maps are of entire continents and then they narrow in on specific countries, states, and areas. Standard items like bodies of water, cities, capitals, landforms, regions, etc. are labeled and many maps contain small captions that list historical events that happened in different areas on the map. The rest of the atlas is a "factfile" guide that shares statistics about the 195 countries of the world. For each country, the atlas includes another map of the area and information on geography, climate, people & society, and economy, and stats on date of formation, population, area, density, language, religions, ethnic mix, government, and currency. With 260 detailed maps and full coverage of the world's regions, this handy little atlas is a great reference to have around. 432 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.

    Roaming around the country to various homeschooling conventions, I've spent my share of time on historic Route 66. However, I've never seen the theme of Route 66 used in such a fun and productive way. Oftentimes Sunday School and Bible classes get in a rut of telling the same basic stories and doing the same activities over and over again. There's no danger of that when using this fun theme, because lessons and activities are provided for every book in the Bible. Students learn about each book (author, setting, etc.), as well as important stories and lessons within them. The book seems intended to be used in a Sunday school setting, with lessons divided into three 12-week units, but it could easily be used for a Bible class with just a student or two, or each activity page could also stand alone and be used to supplement other materials. Each lesson begins with a travel guide for teachers, which includes an overview of the featured book, key verses and stories in the featured book, warm-up questions, and ideas and suggestions to help with lesson planning. The lessons can require fairly small amounts of prep work, or you can go all out with the Route 66 theme; the material is pretty flexible. Three reproducible activity pages are included in each lesson, based on that particular lesson's book of the Bible. Activities can be completed with pencil or markers and include things like crosswords, word searches, hidden pictures, fill in the blanks, short-answer questions, and more. Fuel Up pages have short answer questions challenging students to read specific verses in the Bible to find the answers. Review pages (or Remember Where We've Been? sections) are provided at the end of each unit, which offer cumulative review questions for students to answer alone or in groups. The Route 66 theme helps students feel like they're really going on an adventure as they work their way through the 66 books of the Bible. There are even instructions and reproducible pages for making a Souvenir Scrapbook, which is a creative and fun way to keep track of what they learn. If you're looking for a fun way to educate your child or Sunday School group on each book of the Bible as well as the author, era, purpose, key verse, and the main characters and stories of each book, you should definitely take a look at this book. With all of the different components, your students are sure to get a solid overview of the Bible. By Christian Ditchfield, 192 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    First published in 1923, this atlas has gone on to become the number-one college reference atlas used in the United States. Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date atlas of world geography that we sell, this one will meet all your needs from a basic reference tool for finding countries, capitals, cities, mountains, rivers, and oceans, to a detailed study on, quite literally, hundreds of different aspects of worldwide geography. The atlas is divided into three sections: World Maps, Regional Maps, and Tables and Indexes. The World Maps section is a collection of dozens and dozens of mostly thematic maps, but it also includes a political world map, a physical world map, and three ocean floor maps. The Regional Maps section then looks at each of the continents in turn, as well as the major oceans and polar regions. North America is more closely studied than the others, with 76 pages of thematic maps of the US providing an in-depth look at the geographic aspects of employment, transportation, climate, and other topics; over 140 pages of reference maps are devoted to the other continents, oceans, and polar regions. The final section contains the tables of statistics, glossary of foreign geographical terms, abbreviations and pronunciations of geographic names, 30,000 longitude and latitude locations, and a subject index that no atlas would be without. Complete, colorful, and up-to-date, this atlas is a very easy-to-use resource that will help every reader or student of geography get to know our world. 426 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    This atlas from Rand McNally bridges the gap between simpler atlases geared to younger students and adult reference-only atlases. Like its adult cousins, this atlas is packed full of colorful maps and handy reference material; however, it also includes some student-friendly features such as charts/graphs, and narrative text. The atlas begins with an overview of map terminology. Next are sections on the earth/solar system, plate tectonics, climate, and other topics pertaining to physical geography. A twelve-page countries and flags of the world section presents basic information about 199 countries. Seven world maps are included: political, physical, climate, economic, population density, environments, and time zones. Detailed political and physical maps are provided for each of the seven continents and the U.S., plus thematic maps and select regional/country maps. Some examples of the continent thematic maps include: climate, population, environments/land use, or special topics specific to the continent (i.e. destruction of the rain forest in South America). Glossary and index included. 176 pgs, pb. Revisd in 2017. ~ Lisa

    As far as biblical atlases go, this one really caught my attention. Its clean, uncluttered layout, and colorful, clearly labeled maps combine with numerous photographs and illustrations to deliver a uniquely vibrant look at the lands described in the Bible. The 75 maps explore biblical history from the time of Abraham to the Revelation, while the accompanying texts and charts help to explain what the reader is looking at. A great companion to any Bible study, and an intriguing book to simply browse through. 175 pgs, pb. Zach

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach

    In a remarkably fluid manner, this reference shows the political, religious, and trade changes occurring in Europe, North Africa and the Near East from A.D. 362 to A.D. 1483. There are 47 maps in all, arranged in six sections. Each section features five to six maps, spaced in intervals of about 40 years which show the political boundaries of the area at that time. The last map or two included in each section depicts the territories of Christianity and Islam, and various other maps may also be included that show trade routes and cities of the period, population of various regions, or further exploration of the world. Each two-page spread consists of the map on the right-hand page, with the left-hand page providing a detailed commentary on the changes that are reflected on the map. While the commentary may be a little advanced for younger students, the maps provide an easier-to-understand visual look at the known world of the period, and could be used as visuals for a wider range of students with some explanation. The maps themselves feature black-and-white land territories and blue bodies of water. Various shading patterns make it easy to distinguish the territories of different kingdoms and peoples. Additional notes and an index are also included. A fairly compact guide, this would make an excellent supplemental resource to any in-depth study of medieval history, where students can actually "see" the shift from Roman to early modern times. - Jess

    An engaging online version of the Veritas Bible courses providing (through an activation code) a multi-sensory, interactive format with parallel content but adding exciting games and videos. The emphasis is still on memorizing names, dates and places; learning how God worked in early biblical times in order to provide a solid foundation for more in-depth studies in later years. The student can work at his/her own pace while the program keeps track of things, recording grades from worksheets and tests. ~ Janice

    While this atlas has a fairly unassuming look to it, and a price-point to match, it actually contains a stunning array of information. At 112 pages, you might just get more for your money out of this atlas than from most. A helpful highlighted tab section printed across the top of each open spread tells you exactly what you are looking at. The first tab, of course (after the table of contents), is how to use the atlas; the next tab contains the legend/projection/scale. Then comes latitude and longitude, map types, the solar system map, the world physical map, the world political map, the world's ocean floors, earth dynamics (earthquake and volcano zones), geographic features (the only section I found that refers to "millions of years"), climate, vegetation/land cover, environmental issues, population, population issues, languages/literacy/religions, land use/GDP/employment, mining/energy, information sharing, and transportation. The continent section spends the most time on North America, with maps detailing the following: political, physical, population, land use and resources, climate, and vegetation. The US is looked at in detail through the following: state flags, physical and political maps and facts, climate, vegetation, land use, energy and minerals, transportation, population, and income. Canada and Mexico both have close-ups showing political and physical country maps, with flags and crests. The other continents have the following maps: political, physical, population, GDP, land use, climate, vegetation, and environmental issues. This atlas gives you a really thorough overview of the world using thematic, political, and physical maps and deals with the world mostly at the continental level. The only regions that are looked at more closely are the US, Canada, and Mexico. A very colorful, easy-to-use resource. – Zach
