Collins Keystart World Atlas by Stephen Scoffham, Collins Maps

Collins Keystart World Atlas is a multi-topic atlas of the World, which introduces topics to reflect the Geography, History and Environmental Studies Key Stage 2 requirements of the National Curriculum. The atlas is organised into themes: landscapes, climate, cities, pollution, explorers, global issues etc. Each spread is devoted to a single topic. A variety of maps, graphs, text and photographs are used to allow integration of the different strands of Geography, History and Environmental Studies curriculi.


An atlas that is much more than just an atlas, this colourful book brings together masses of historical, geographical and environmental information about the planet we live on and organises it in an engaging way for 7-11 year-olds. Each section has some great questions for discussion, activity suggestions and pointers to sources of further information. There's surely at least one lesson - probably more - in every double page spread. There is also a companion Collins Keystart UK Atlas available. Both books have as their strapline 'Explore the world - past, present and future
