A vital resource for H/SS (K-3, VS, USI-II), Science (Gr. 4-8 & Earth Science), and ELA (Gr. 4-8) with content vocabulary and informational text. The Teachers’ Guide and Atlas include 100+ pages of color maps, access to interactive maps, content reading excerpts, images, graphs, charts, and interactive activities that promote the VDOE H/SS, ELA, and Science skills with an emphasis on the 5Cs.
An Atlas of Virginia, including all of its maps and narrative pages, is held in copyright by The Virginia Geographic Alliance (VGA) and may not be reproduced.

Consider partnering with your school PTA/ PTO, and other civics organizations for funding. Many of the Atlas pages are already aligned with the recommendations of the AAHEC so this resource will be an excellent instructional tool as textbook publishers won’t catch up to these changes for quite a while.
