    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 youre 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

    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 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, youll 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. Its 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 dont? Thats 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

    These workbooks have been created as study guides to accompany the reading of Pilgrims Progress in Todays English (#54230). Volume 1: Christians Journey covers the first eleven chapters (or part 1) while Volume 2: Christianas Journey completes the second part of the book, covering chapters 12-20. Chapters in the study are broken down into parts to allow the reader to dissect a few pages at a time. Opening with fill-in-the-blank statements, each part then moves on to discuss the characters, also providing an explanation of what the objects or characters symbolize. In addition, there is a Bible reading and a couple of concluding questions. Each part takes time to help the student fully understand the overall allegory. While these would be an excellent study for an individual child, they would also make a great family devotion. ~ Gina

    What tools do you use when you read? Background music? Post-it notes? Highlighter? Do you like to read small chunks at a time? Or spend hours? Middle school and high school students are usually still figuring out exactly what tools work best for them and if they need different tools for different types of reading. In a humorous, conversational manner written directly to the student, the reader has the opportunity to examine a myriad of tools that various people use to make reading more profitable. Each tool/skill is dissected and taken in small chunks with Lets Practice! exercises at regular intervals. Chapters conclude by asking the student to reflect on what he has learned followed by a collection of review questions labeled Brain Ticklers. (Answers for these are on the following page.) For instance, the chapter on Different Types of Reading focuses on reading textbooks. Students are encouraged to start by looking at how the textbook is set up and then are given specific strategies for textbook reading. The SQ3R method (Survey, Question, Read, Record, Review) is covered thoroughly as well as the idea of using a textbook response sheet. And the book is packed with practical ideas for conquering reading skills graphic organizers, helpful hints, and mnemonic devices, to name just a few. With reading passages and questions as well, this book is more than a supplement; rather, it is like a study skills class for the wanting-to-succeed student or the need-to-catch-up student. 210 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Part of the Nancy Bs 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 cant 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.

    What is a sentence? Only the most basic component of all writing and perhaps its most neglected. This course goes a long way toward correcting that situation. The general idea is that just as we acquire good oral language skills by hearing/listening, we can acquire good written language skills by observing and mimicking excellent writers. Using model sentences written by professionals, the student is taught four basic sentence manipulation techniques sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence combining, and sentence expanding. Each of these techniques is developed through a series of activities, 33 in all, each of which provide one to three practice exercises. To give you an idea, Unit 1, Sentence Unscrambling, Activity 7 gives the student practice in identifying and removing comma splices. Unit 3, Sentence Imitating, Activity 22 includes two practice exercises that require the student to practice adding words, adding phrases, and adding clauses as they combine, then imitate. If this sounds just a little like grammar, well, you would be correct. These are exercises in applied grammar. After all, composing sentences is the other side of the coin from dissecting them (the basic activity of most grammar programs). All in all, even though this is a very skill-targeted course, the value of the skill makes it an excellent choice for the writing component of any particular middle school years language arts. A reference in the back of the book includes the authors original sentences which serves as an answer key of sorts.136 pgs, pb ~ Janice
