Editions

Oxford Atlas+ for Australian Schools goes beyond a traditional atlas series by providing comprehensive coverage of the Science and Humanities and Social Sciences curricula for Years F–6, integrated into one program. There is also targeted support for the Technologies curriculum.

What does Oxford Atlas+ for Australian Schools look like in the classroom?

The Atlases:

  • teach essential map-reading skills and feature world, continent and country maps
  • contain high-interest topics explicitly linked to outcomes in the Science curriculum and the Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum
  • use practical, inquiry-based activities and experiments to teach topics and to develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • are accompanied by a wealth of digital resources that support the Technologies curriculum, including interactives designed to develop authentic design solutions and computational thinking across different subject areas.

The integrated curriculum approach enables authentic learning experiences, while the application of cross-disciplinary and problem-solving skills encourages students to be innovative, creative, learners.
