    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

  • Item #: 012729
    Retail: $22.00
    Rainbow Price: $17.50

    If you're looking for a good starter set for dissection, this may be the one. This set includes a 10" x 6" sturdy, plastic tray; a fitted, reusable pad; scissors; a probe; forceps; and a teacher guide. A cover that fits over the tray will help you keep your set together. This size of tray and pad is the perfect size for smaller specimens such as an earthworm, frog, clam, or grasshopper. You'll notice this kit doesn't include a scalpel, as it is assumed you have access to one. Instruments are sharp, and students should use caution in working with them. Won't it be fun working with your student when they dissect for the first time? ~ Donna

    Let the dissections begin! Whether you are an adventurous homeschooler and want to create your own labs, need an additional dissection pan for other children or are looking to replace one that has been lost, this inexpensive dissection pan will meet all of your needs and more! Constructed of quality polyethylene, the interior of the pan measures approximately 10” x 6 ¼” (outer dimensions approx. 10 ½” x 6 ½”) making it perfect for frog, fish, earthworm or owl pellet dissections. Adding to the value of the dissection pan is the included flex pad and cover. The smooth surface, flex pad, is removable and washable, making this reusable and practical for years of home (or school) lab science. The clear plastic cover snaps firmly into place to prevent moisture loss, allowing you to store specimens between lab time. Cover height is approx. 3”. Worth mentioning, the Econopan is designed to be used with the included Disecto Flex-Pad only and not wax, as is commonly used in aluminum dissection pans. ~ Deanne

    How to Dissect is a one-stop book for all of your dissecting guidelines. This book offers step-by-step illustrations and instructions for dissecting an earthworm, crayfish, grasshopper, clam, squid, starfish, shark, perch, frog, and fetal pig as well as a gladiolus to introduce botanical dissection. Dissections range from beginning to advanced and discuss the digestive, circulatory, reproductive, excretory, nervous, and respiratory systems. The book begins with an explanation and importance of dissection, points for successful dissection, and a list of tools commonly used in the process. A conversion table from English to metric measure is included for easy reference, since science tends to use metric as the universal system. Each dissection lesson includes background information about that animal, materials needed for the dissection, and black & white illustrations along with instructions for each step of the dissection. It also explains compass points of anatomy (anterior, posterior, etc.) which are found in all creatures and are used to help observe life. This 200+ page, paperback guide would be a terrific resource to accompany any biology curriculum.
