Description

YEARS 7 - 12

The Jacaranda Society and Environment Atlas is an atlas and resource book designed specifically for the Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) area of study. Stimulating maps, photographs, diagrams and text bring to life the themes of history, geography, culture, resources and systems. It is the most comprehensive resource of its type, featuring four unique sections within one package.

Features:



A wide array of introductory resources and activities gives students the opportunity to understand and practise the skills of history, geography and the social sciences.
Stunning culture, history and socio-economic pages are included in the most extensive coverage of each Australian State ever attempted in a school atlas.
Revolutionary maps developed by Jacaranda give students both clarity and detail. Key features and cities are clear and easy to find, with a large number of place names available in the background. There is an emphasis on history for each continent, focusing on ancient civilisations.
History, geography, culture, resources and systems studies are presented through top quality three-dimensional artwork, maps, photographs, graphs, statistics and text. Students will turn to this section time and time again for a window on Australia and the world.
