THE NYSTROM WORLD ATLASSmart information design makes this atlas easily accessible


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. 8½"x 11". 120 pages. Fifth Edition. ©2015.
