APH Sense of Science - Plants

The following is from the APH website:

Sense of Science is a unique series designed to make the world of science accessible, understandable, and enjoyable.

The main component in each Sense of Science kit from APH is a set of colorful, raised-line overlays designed to be used with a light box, or as stand-alone items. An accompanying guidebook suggests activities using the overlays and supplemental teacher-provided materials to enhance and extend the learning experience.

Three modules are currently available, Sense of Science: Plants, Sense of Science: Animals, and Sense of Science: Astronomy. Additional modules will be available in the future. 

Sense of Science: Plants is the first module of a unique science series for visually impaired students in grades K-3, and for other students who may benefit from a multisensory approach to learning.
