Cell phones and GPS gadgets abound, but there is no substitute for learning the tried and true method of using an atlas. In this concise volume, readers learn how atlases came to exist and how they have evolved over the years. Exercises and fact boxes throughout the book engage readers in hands-on activities to familiarize them with using an atlas and its features. This instructive volume supports Common Core Standards (such as using glossaries and indexes, interpreting charts, and drawing on information from multiple sources) with content that encourages and inspires thinking, reading, and discussion.
