Product Description

This collection of vacuum-formed, full-color raised-line tactile graphics related to Earth Science serves as a reference volume intended to supplement the graphics in a student’s classroom textbook.

The graphics included in this kit are rendered in full color with several types of lines and textures, in addition to differing heights. Diagrams are labeled in print and braille (UEB), and teachers can add to, or change, the labels with self-adhesive braille label material. All tactile graphics are printed and vacuum-formed using sturdy, high-grade plastic, and are three-hole punched to place in a binder.

Instructional hints are provided for each tactile graphic in the Teacher’s Guide, which is included in the binder. Teachers are encouraged to use the tactile images to augment lessons for students who are not using standard printed textbook diagrams. Effective use of the tactile images depends on a foundation of tactile reading skills, student’s hands-on experiences, and verbal descriptions from the teacher. The large print Teacher’s Guide is also available in accessible HTML and BRF formats on the APH Website with purchase of the product.
