Finally, an atlas especially created for younger students! The production of The Junior Atlas of Canada and the World is a successful culmination of a careful collaboration of elementary teachers determined to provide primary students with a resource that is interesting, clear and easy to use. This colourful atlas provides children with simplified political and physical maps of the world, the continents, Canada and the provinces. Unlike most school atlases, the clutter has been kept to a minimum – only the most basic of facts and visual information is given so as not to distract young eyes and minds.
Simple and clear, The Junior Atlas of Canada and the World will be helpful for teaching younger students about basic map skills and for discovering interesting facts about the world and Canada. The colourful and clearly designed maps, fact pages and a simple index of the continents, oceans and countries make discovering our world and country much easier for primary students.
“This is a colourful, attractive and basic atlas especially suited to primary students. Students are introduced to basic map depictions of the world, the continents and especially Canada – provinces and territories. The maps depict both political divisions and physical aspects of the continents and Canada. There is a good index and two pages of basic facts on Canada and the world.“
