Smart information design makes this atlas easily accessible
THE NYSTROM WORLD ATLAS
Great use of color, along with a knack for finding the right balance between simplicity and information density, makes this an excellent classroom atlas for middle and high school students. Chapters address the world, its continents and regions, the Pacific Rim, and the Arctic and Antarctic. Most regional studies are anchored by two shaded-relief reference maps (political and land cover), while the world and U.S. sections also include sculptural-relief (elevation) and thematic maps. Photographs, graphs, and explanatory sidebar text further enrich the treatment of each region. Intended for grades 6–12, but written at an approachable, ELL-friendly level. Indexes. Glossaries. 8˝" x 11". 120 pages. Fifth Edition. ©2015.
- STUDENT ACTIVITIES. A reproducible student activity book supplies outline maps plus activities (with answer key) for every page of the atlas, and 15 additional information literacy lessons that come in two versions: with or without correlations to Common Core State Standards (CCSS). 8˝" x 11". 164 pages. ©2015.
- ATLAS PACK. Combines 30 atlases, the student activity book, and a five-year atlas ebook subscription with online activities.
- ATLAS EBOOK SUBSCRIPTION. License for one teacher and all of that teacher’s students.
