Each map is accompanied by beautiful photos, supporting text, and activities that have students apply their understanding of mapping conventions and skills.

Dictionary 1 features an engaging introduction to basic dictionary and word skills; age-appropriate definitions for 1800 entries; and a colourful, highly visual design. Dictionary 1 has a special focus on subject-area vocabulary required by Canadian curricula, and includes a special feature on every spread to help teachers use the dictionary for direct instruction and independent vocabulary development.
