Synopsis

Oxford International Primary Atlas Activity Book by Patrick Wiegand

The Oxford International Primary Atlas Activity Book builds upon themes introduced in the Oxford International Primary 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 Primary Atlas is a clear, bright and informative atlas for all 7-11 year olds in the international classroom. It introduces primary school pupils to key geographical themes and curriculum topics, including landscapes, water, settlements, connections, and environments.
