Nature Print Paper
Nature Print Paper produces beautiful, permanent prints from natural and man-made materials. This unique light-sensitive paper exposes in direct sunlight to create white on blue prints. When placed on the paper, flat objects such as leaves, photo negatives, coins, cut-outs, lace, etc. block the sun and provide the subject for the print. This photographic-like image requires no inks, presses, photo equipment, darkroom, or chemicals. Exposure time is approximately 2-3 minutes (depending on the level of sunlight), then develop in water in seconds. It's fast, safe, and leaves no mess. Nature Print Paper is great for any age group and includes full, simple instructions. This paper is wonderful for discussing the differences between opaque, translucent, and transparent materials. Each package contains 40 sheets of 12.7 x 17.8 cm (5" x 7") light-sensitive paper.
Press Print Frame Holder
Special multi-use printing frames! Holds flat samples together without moving during exposure; no need for rocks or tape to hold the specimens. When finished, the frames may be used to display your prints. 19 x 24 cm (7.5" x 9.5") Four frames/pkg.
Super Sized 11" x 17" Nature Print Paper
These giant sheets of Nature Print Paper are perfect for large group and science fair projects and produce large beautiful prints suitable for framing.

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
Suggested Science Idea(s)
Students can use Nature Print Paper to plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effects of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to gather evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Students can use Nature Print Paper as they develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms in infer evolutionary relationships.
Students can use Nature Print Paper in conjunction with mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.
This light-sensitive paper exposes in direct sunlight. Students can use it to test transparent, translucent, and opaque materials in their investigation of Electromagnetic Waves and the movement of waves.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to examine the profile of leaves and gather evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
Students can use a variety of found objects to be developed on the Nature Print Paper. The picture will serve as a simple physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Students can use Nature Print Paper to create photo negatives of modern organisms like plants and animals. These two-dimensional images will aid students in observation skills of details. The shadow prints will simplify interpreting and understanding the fossil record, as well as the form and function of structures / traits.
It would be interesting for students to use various media over the Nature Print Paper to see how the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves travel differently. Exposure on the paper should vary.
Students can use Nature Print Paper and vary the exposure time to evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.
