Classroom Activity Kits Available for Borrow

Available for teachers within a 30 minute drive from Portland, our Classroom Activity Kits include high-quality printed reproductions of map sets as well as a variety of age-appropriate worksheet activities, answer keys, hands-on craft or game, and all necessary instructions.

Classroom Activity Kits can be borrowed at no cost for up to a week (or more in special cases). Kits will be quarantined for 72 hours in between uses. OML educators will deliver and pick up the activity kit from your school office. Teachers outside of the 30 minute driving range can arrange to pick up the maps themselves if they wish.
