Synopsis

Oxford International First Atlas Activity Book by Patrick Wiegand

The Oxford International First Atlas Activity Book builds upon themes introduced in the Oxford International First Atlas to develop and reinforce geographical concepts and map skills. The Activity Book offers maps and activities to encourage pupils to work independently and to practise and develop their knowledge and understanding of the topics and themes covered in the atlas. Assessment for Learning support throughout the Activity Book enables teachers and pupils to monitor their progress. The Oxford International First Atlas is a stimulating first atlas for young children. It introduces young learners to maps and develops early atlas skills, encouraging them to talk about local and distant places and to find key places on maps. Based on the popular Oxford Infant Atlas, this new atlas uses colourful artwork-style maps, photographs and satellite images to create an exciting first atlas for all 3-6 year olds.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
