World and U.S. Almanac & Atlas

Every year, Junior Scholastic publishes our World and United States Almanac & Atlas. This special issue is jam-packed with up-to-date information about the world’s 196 independent countries and the 50 U.S. states. Have students use it all year long as a handy reference tool and to think critically about the world around them.

Dig Into the Data

You can browse the digital versions of this issue’s tables and maps here. Students can sort data, filter by region, and more. While you’re there, be sure to download our U.S. Almanac Scavenger Hunt to help students practice their research skills.

After your students explore the atlas and almanac, point them to our Map Skills Boot Camp for even more geography practice. These 13 lessons are all available as interactive Google activities, so you can assign them to students to complete digitally.
