Braille Outline Maps, models 1-01600-00 through 1-01611-00, are tactile maps designed for use by students who are blind or have low vision. These maps of the United States are inexpensive and consumable, so teachers can mark them appropriately for the lessons of the day. There are ten different types of maps embossed on 80 pound braille paper. One map is of the 48 continguous states and bordering areas of Mexico and Canada. Another map is an overview map which depicts all of North America including Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, the continental U.S., Mexico, the West Indies and the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The other maps are regional sections of the United States broken into Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, Mountain, Pacific, Alaska and Hawaii. Each map has an insert which shows the region's location in relation to the continental U.S. Regional maps are the same scale in relation to each other. On all maps, states are outlined with a dotted line, countries are outlined with a single solid line, and country borders are depicted with a double solid line. All maps include a scale of miles and latitude and longitude lines. Maps are sold in a set containing one of each of the ten maps or they are sold individually in packages of ten copies of a single map. DIMENSIONS: Maps are 17 x 15 inches.
