Order a DPB Kit

Although I make all the materials and maps for Discovering Plate Boundaries available for free download from this site, it is more convenient for many teachers to order a kit containing all the unique materials needed to do the exercise with your class. When I do the exercise, I use 24" by 36" versions of the maps. Most teachers do not have easy access to a color widebed plotter that can make these maps from the downloadable file. The files can be taken to a local graphics company with the appropriate plotter, but the cost would likely be hundreds of dollars for the set of 4 maps. I make the kit available for $80. This is the cost of production for me. The kit includes the 4 large maps printed on paper (ready to be laminated for many years of use!), and master copies of the material I copy and handout to the students.
