An Atlas For You

My students need up to date desk atlases and a protective laminate to preserve them.

My Students

It is hard enough figuring out where East Timor, Congo and Eritrea are, but when your atlas is from 1993 it is near impossible. Not only that but the facts and data about the world are obsolete and misleading. Help us get up to date!

Our sixth graders deserve better than to use outdated atlases.

They are hard working, diligent researchers of world cultures. As we explore our small planet they find corners of the world they had no idea existed. Through these discoveries they connect with places that were so foreign before. Without accurate tools to do this research my students are running the risk of misconception.

My Project

Now it is true that we live in a changing world, but trying to decipher an atlas that is almost two decades old is unfairly putting my students behind the times. We are asking for a classroom set of Nystrom Desk Atlases combined with a teacher reference binder and protective laminate to make them last. These Atlases are perfect for my classroom and for my students. First off they divide the world into sensible regions that are easy to break down without making things too simple. Students can explore the pages or go directly to the index and find a location using latitude and longitude. In short these books will enable us to better explore our world.

This project will give my students a valuable tool in investigating the world around them.

It also encourages them to become more independent researchers of the various places and cultures we learn about through the year.
