A Look Inside

Support your geography or global studies classroom with the newly updated, hands-on Mapping Our World series. The program includes a comprehensive student atlas, teacher’s guide, and 15 markable activity maps. Digital subscription includes additional close-reading activities and online assessments.


Digital Maps and Activities

Enhance your blended classroom with engaging atlases and interactive activities. The online activities  available in Nystrom World push students to think critically about the atlas's many maps, photos, and graphs as they interpret information from multiple sources to draw conclusions, and the e-atlas flipbook provides access to online-only content that allows students to dig deeper into the atlas's themes.

Incorporating hands-on activities with maps can help students ground themselves in a specific location when discussing geography or history. This forms a connection that is tangible, experiential, and therefore memorable.
