Using Actual Size—Social Studies, you can discuss Columbus’s voyages while students stroll a full-scale drawing of the Santa Maria’s deck. Imagine the impact when kids arrive at school to find a life-sized blue whale drawn on the playground—courtesy of Actual Size—Science. Or watch how a lesson about the Oregon Trail comes alive when kids are sitting in an exact scale model of a prairie schooner. You can talk about dinosaurs—or help draw a full-size Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Complete, detailed, and accurate blueprints make creating the drawings a breeze. Incredibly popular with students.

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!
