National Geographic Kids United States Atlas (Atlas )
Just like its companion volume National Geographic Kids World Atlas, the USA atlas is INTERACTIVE. A specially designed Web site will allow kids to link directly to hundreds of National Geographic maps, photographs, and articles plus videos, music, games, and more that will expand their knowledge and perspective about this country and its states and regions. All maps are custom-designed for middle-grade students by the Society’s world-famous cartographers and each is shown in the context of surrounding areas. Throughout, locator maps and colour coding make it easy for kids to keep track of where they are and to quickly navigate from region to region and state to state. The combination of large, detailed, yet easy-to-read mapsboth physical and political; stunning, full-colour photo essays; information-packed thematic spreads; and the interactive component sets this atlas apart from every other U.S. atlas currently available for the 8-12 age market and makes it an invaluable resource.
