Life Science Tactile Graphics

Life Science Tactile Graphics is a collection of vacuum-formed, full-color raised-line tactile graphics intended to supplement the figures and diagrams in life science textbooks. It depicts organisms, processes, concepts, and patterns which are typically covered in middle- and high school life science classes.

The drawings in Life Science Tactile Graphics employ several types of lines and textures as well as different heights. Braille labels are provided on the drawings, but you may easily add to or change the labels by creating self-adhesive braille labels of your own.

Teaching Suggestions Provided

Instructional hints and suggestions are given for each tactile drawing. The goal of the suggestions is to help make science learning real for students who are not using standard printed images. These graphics help demonstrate concepts in science just as print images do, but to be effective, they always depend on a foundation of tactile reading skills, students' hands-on experiences, and verbal description you provide.
