  • Item #: 012729
    Retail: $22.00
    Rainbow Price: $19.95

    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

    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.

    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

    As a homeschool mom, dissecting owl pellets was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Thankfully, I was convinced differently by my inquisitive children! This handy book provides insights into barn owls along with their habits and characteristics, ecology, habitats, and prey. This valuable asset to your owl pellet dissection projects contains information about the pellet and its contents. Black and white illustrations and measurements help children identify bones found in the pellet. Beneficial helps include instructions on building an owl nest box, a glossary, selected readings and short answer review questions (no answers to reviews questions are provided, although correct answers are readily found in the text). 28 pgs. ~Deanne

    We get requests every year for DVD courses. We finally have a Bible-based biology course on DVD which qualifies for high school credit. Students watch as the instructor, Wes Olson, explains the definition of life and takes you through the days of Creation and the specimens created on those days. In order, you will learn about plants, water animals, flying creatures, land animals, and mankind, and wrap it all up with lessons about genetics.

    There are 4 DVDs for a total running time of 4 ½ hours. The video is well done, the sound is clear, and a little humor is thrown in to keep the content interesting. The author describes this course as a "super-condensed, fun-filled, fascinating overview of the world of biology." If you grasp the basics taught in this program, you'll have a solid understanding of biology. The 4th disc contains pdf files from which you can print the guidebook, quizzes, and the schedule to follow for high school credit. Guidebook pages follow the points of the video presentation along with black/white illustrations and interesting tidbits of information printed in the margins. At the end of each section is a multiple-choice quiz and a list of possible discussion questions. Answers to the quizzes are found in the back of the book. The 'Course Accreditation Program' is a weekly schedule for DVD watching, discussion, reading and activities with the amount of time you should allot for each. It then gives you a space to record the actual hours spent on each activity. High school credits are based on hours spent on a course of study, and 120-180 hours constitutes one credit. This course totals 135 hours if you follow the accreditation schedule. You could add dissection labs or microscope labs for more content. Note that the activities in this course are simple labs like identifying plants and animals or watching a fish, so if you live in a state which requires lab sciences for high school credit you will need to make some additions. It's nice to have alternatives to traditional textbooks, and this DVD course offers an interesting, family-friendly option. - Donna

    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

    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

    • Accessory Set: 5 blank slides, 4 prepared slides, 1 concave slide, slide labels, 10 cover glasses, pipette, forceps, lens paper, small plastic test tube, small plastic Petri dish, straight teasing needle, and red and blue dye.

    With expanded lab accessories to add more depth to your studies, this set also includes: a cloth dust cover, real bug specimens (2) encased in acrylic for safe viewing, a 20x Handheld Magnifier with LED and Black Light and my personal favorite "extra" –the Analyze This! Book. Although designed to accompany the Biology Slide Set from My First Lab, you will find this an excellent resource to any prepared Biology Slide Set (including many of the Apologia biology slides). What I love about this book is the full color photos of authentic, labeled microscope slides. No longer will you or your children have to worry about the accuracy of what your eyes see. Using the slides of your choice, view then draw and identify the specimens in your lab notebook and compare them to the images in this book. No more second-guesses! Also includes a 16 pg. user manual designed to teach compound and stereo microscope use, ideas for observation (with sample images) and user guide for the Handheld Magnifier (Mini-Inspector), including black light experiments. Finally, a microscope designed to grow with your children from middle school through the high school labs. ~Deanne
