Printing the book yourself
The files below are set up to be printed back-to-back (duplex printing) on a color printer using 3-hole drilled paper and cardstock. Note that you'll need to turn Page Scaling OFF in your Print dialog box in order to have items such as the rock core images in Activity 3D print at the appropriate size.
The Paper.pdf file should be printed on standard or premium-weight paper; it contains 190 single-sided pages or 80 duplex pages. The Cardstock.pdf file should be printed on cardstock; it contains 56 single pages, so it requires 28 pieces of cardstock. The Cover.pdf file is just one page. Print it on paper or cardstock and insert it into the front of a clear-view binder. Use the page numbers to collate all pages and store them in a 3-ring binder.Download file of pages to print on paper (37.6 MB)
