Overview

The third edition of the award-winning National Geographic Student Atlas of the World has everything for today’s globally-minded student: new photographs and graphics of our changing planet, maps that reflect modern borders, and fully updated essays and statistics.

Specially designed for middle- and high-school students, this compact, fact-filled atlas will put the world at your fingertips. The third edition of this perennial favorite is chockfull of maps, charts, and graphs, photographs, flags and facts—everything you need to help understand the world.

You’ll begin by learning about maps and how to read them. Then you’ll explore the world’s physical and human systems, including Earth’s geologic history, natural vegetation, and world cultures. A stunning view from space introduces each continent, and full-page, full-color maps represent its physical and political make-up, its climate and precipitation, and its population and predominant economies. A vivid photo essay highlights an issue relevant to each continent, such as the European Union, or deforestation in the Amazon. Continuity of map sizes and scales encourages data comparison, which helps geography students to develop higher-level thinking skills.

The National Geographic Student Atlas of the World is much more than maps. Weblink icons direct you to Internet sites to expand your knowledge and keep statistics up to date. The third edition of the award-winning National Geographic Student Atlas of the World is an invaluable resource and a must-have reference tool for libraries and homes everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Myrna Dee Marler
This handy reference guide should interest readers of all ages. Aside from the many colorful maps, pictures, and interesting sidebars, the book contains different definitions of maps with illustrations, metric conversion tables, an artistic rendering of the alignment of the planets, and information on population density and wildlife. The only kind of map and information it does not contain are detailed street maps, but then, those are easily available on the internet. The accompanying text is easy enough for bright elementary school students but will be informative for older teens as well. This beautiful book gives the reader an expanded view of what the world is like and the many different climates, populations, and wildlife species that share the planet. This is handy for ready reference or simply reading to find out more about the subject of the earth we live on. Reviewer: Myrna Dee Marler
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—This book is divided into two sections. The first part presents maps, photos, illustrations, graphs, text, and recent statistics to help students learn about Earth and how humans have used and affected its resources. It provides a basic introduction to geography, and a variety of images to show how maps are made and how to read them. One chapter discusses the physical systems of the Earth, such as geological history, climate zones, vegetation, water availability, and environmentally vulnerable areas, and another on human systems examines world populations, cities, languages, religions, economies, food production, energy, and cultures. The second section, with one chapter for each continent, offers more traditional atlas coverage. Large maps depict physical and political features, climate, population distribution, and economic activity, and special "Focus On" features examine some aspect of the continent. Back matter includes basic statistics and an illustration of the flag for each nation and thematic and place-name indexes. The first section of the book, which provides easily understood information about geography and maps, is stronger than the second, which contains only general information about each continent and does not include highly detailed maps, but that basic introduction will nevertheless be valuable to many students.—Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
