The atlas titled “California: A Changing State” is a teaching resource developed by the CGA with support from the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, S.D. Bechtel Junior Foundation – Stephen Bechtel Fund and the National Geographic Education Foundation. Designed for a fourth grade audience, the 50-page atlas includes over 100 original maps, diagrams and tables, including information about how to understand and use maps.
The atlas content and accompanying lesson plans are now readily available to all on the CGA web site, and the SDSU CGA team is busy updating all of the maps and working toward the creation of a “next generation” atlas that would incorporated extended online content. Stay tuned for more news on the future of this valuable resource!
