ACTUAL SIZE—Create Full-Scale Drawings Right on Your Playground!
“The Actual Size Series provides hands-on activities that maintain student engagement and clear instructions…. a ‘must have’ resource for teachers.”
"What a fabulous resource. We had fun with the Actual Size—Science book today. It has been raining non stop the last couple of days so it was nice to get outside for some learning fun. I love that so many subjects are covered including art, math, geography, science and more.”
“In reviewing this book, I thought of so many ways these lessons could be used! This One-Room Schoolhouse really gets my Little House on the Prairie love going :)... With a little imagination and creativity, you could easily use Actual Size—Social Studies for years.”
“Actual Size makes a great addition to your classroom and your students will love this hands-on learning experience.”
“Ask any adult to recall something they learned in school and they will most likely tell you an activity they engaged in in a class. When a child is actively involved in learning, they enjoy the learning more and retain the knowledge longer.”
“That’s cool! You can really see how big it is.”
—Juan S., 13
"Awesome resource!!! Love it!"
