    If you already have the dissection tools you need, this set just includes the individual specimens: an earthworm, a frog, a perch, and a crayfish. Specimens are nice and large, and are preserved with NASCO-Guard®. Please note that all specimens are enclosed in a plastic bag within a zip-close bag, and will ship with a separate packet of care and safety instructions. All specimens are packaged in one bag, so when bag is opened, you will need to reseal it in the reclosable bag to keep the other specimens from gradually drying out. Brief or minimal exposure to air will not harm the specimens. Refrigeration is not required.

    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

    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

    Microscope activity books are great if you already have everything you need to start making your own slides, but what if you don't? That's why I like this kit. The experiment manual is solid enough to stand on its own - a rarity in most science kits today - and the kit includes everything you need to begin using the microscope, exploring prepared slides, and preparing and making your own slides. The full-color 48-page manual begins by explaining microscope use and care, as well as how to safely make thin slices from specimens using a scalpel or razor blade. Then young scientists are ready to start observing! The following sections focus on viewing cells of different types, including cheek cells, onion skin, onion cells affected by salt, egeria/elodea, various fruits and vegetables, starch from foodstuffs, hydra, pollen grains, salt and sugar crystals, insect wings, insect specimens, mushrooms, root hairs, watermelon water ducts, blades of grass, leaves, hair, nettle hairs, and feathers. Each section provides informational text about the subject viewed, detailed instructions on how to make and mount the specimen, tips on specimen-making techniques, and photos of photographed specimens under the microscope. Since the student will probably not be very proficient at preparing their own slides, several prepared slides are included as examples, and the more difficult-to-make specimens are saved for later in the book. The photos of example specimens are also helpful for beginners. Unlike many microscope kits, this one actually has a fairly decent microscope. It is constructed of metal and plastic microscope and has pretty good focusing ability. Features include: a monocular 10X eyepiece, 4X, 10X and 40X glass objective lenses (for 40X, 100X and 400X total magnification). The microscope includes two bright LED lights, one above and one below the stage. This kit would be a great choice for a microscope study, along with a science curriculum, or just for the interested student, especially if you are not planning on investing in a good-quality microscope in the future. Kit includes the experiment manual, microscope, blank slides, prepared slides, coverslips, tweezers, a dissection needle, a scalpel, a pipette, Petri dish with lid, stain, lens paper, blank labels for slides, and a dust cover for the microscope. Microscope requires 3 AA batteries (not included). - Jess

    Part of the Nancy B's Science Club series, this set pairs a junior microscope with an activity journal for guided observations. The beginner microscope features 30x-400x magnification, LED lighting, a coarse focus knob and a rubber eyepiece cup. There are actually two lights – one on the bottom and one on top, so you can use it as a light microscope (for semitransparent slides) and a dissecting microscope (for 3-D objects). Although all plastic, the microscope has a sturdy design and is battery-powered, so you can take it out in the field without worry. While you can't compare this one to an actual compound microscope on optics, it seems to work pretty well for an inexpensive scope, especially in the low magnification range. Several tools are also included with the microscope - four prepared slides, seven blank slides, seven cover slips, a Petri dish, specimen vial, spatula, tweezers, scalpel, stirring rod, test tube and pipette. The 22-page activity journal both acquaints students with how to use the microscope and provides ideas for projects and activities that they can complete while also giving them spaces to record observations. Activities include a variety of subjects, including examining cheek cells, the marks made by various writing utensils, ground spices and more. Please note that the microscope is only battery-powered and requires 3 AA batteries, not included.

    Designed to engage the new nature study enthusiast, this book contains an abundance of easy to implement hands-on activities, divided into chapter categories for quick reference and guidance in your personal nature journey. The author begins by encouraging you to select a chapter category that best fits your unique needs and the tools for a basic nature study kit which can be created inexpensively. Each chapter introduces you to a certain area in which to explore the familiar—and not so familiar—plants, animals and natural phenomena. Chapters include Around the House; Close to Home; In the Garden; At Sundown; In Winter; In the Weather; In Rocks and Water; and At the Seashore. Easy to implement activities (the authors recommend finding an owl pellet to dissect but I would suggest purchasing a sanitized owl pellet for example #033686 or #024986.) Perfect for a Charlotte Mason educator or a traditional educator who wants to introduce more theme-based, hands-on activities. Black and White Illustrations. SC. 251 pgs. ~ Deanne
