NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC STUDENT WORLD ATLAS
Each continent gets a chapter of maps representing its physical and political makeup, its climate and precipitation, and its population and predominant economic activities (except Antarctica, represented by only two maps; Australia includes Oceania). Continuity of map sizes and scales encourages data comparison, and Web links expand student knowledge and keep statistics up to date. Also, an introduction about understanding maps leads into 20 thematic maps of the world, each with a brief explanatory essay. Finally, flags of the nations are accompanied by national statistics.
