World in Maps by Stephen Scoffham, Collins Maps

Collins World in Maps is a multi-topic atlas of the world, which introduces the most relevant physical and human topics to reflect the Geography Key Stage 2-3 requirements of the National Curriculum. Formerly published as Collins Keystart World Atlas, this collection of maps can be used to investigate different themes and topics. It tells a story in maps, diagrams, charts, words and photographs, each of which presents information to compare and examine. We live on a remarkable planet and this atlas helps us to make sense of the world today and understand how things came to be, as well as how they might change in years to come. Suggested activities on each spread encourage users to explorer further.


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 UK in Maps available. Both books have as their strapline 'Explore the world - past, present and future
