  • Item #: 031154
    Retail: $32.00
    Rainbow Price: $25.95

    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.

  • Item #: 012729
    Retail: $21.99
    Rainbow Price: $18.95

    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

    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 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 the PDF files. 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.

    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

    This book should be on every homeschooler's desk (and I don't mean the bookshelf!). Rarely will you hear me be quite so emphatic, but this book is a treasure! Designed to be a companion to Teaching the Classics, a Socratic approach to teaching literature, and undoubtedly an amazing resource for those using that approach, it is also an incredible reference for anyone who wants flexibility in terms of teaching literature coupled with "just enough" structure.

    The authors identified 200 books for grades K-12 and then (in a wonderful spreadsheet format) annotated them with tons of information plot, conflict, theme, aids & devices, and alternate titles (other books that could be used). In short, it lists everything you need at your fingertips to supervise a comprehensive literary analysis of the book. As if that weren't enough, they further reworked that annotated information into six different curriculum models daily, weekly, monthly, six-week, quarterly, and seasonal. These different models mean that you can teach literature in whatever way you want. Want to focus on literature everyday? Want to conduct a short-term co-op course? Want to hit literature "hard" for a little while and then be done? This resource will help you plan and implement any of these scenarios.

    The usefulness doesn't end there, however. There are separate chapters on writing from literature, learning objectives by grade level, grading and assigning credits, and major historical periods in western literature. The writing from literature section gives a brief overview of writing assignments (what sort and how long) for the elementary, junior high, and senior high levels. On the other hand, the analytical essay is dissected very thoroughly and a helpful "tootsie-roll" diagram helps the student to see how the parts of the essay work together. Just as helpful is the model essay that illustrates the effective use of this diagram. The graded learning objectives for literature are quite specific and can be used as a scope and sequence or for developing lesson plans. I used high school literature texts as references when I wanted information about the history of literature, but to have that same information at my fingertips would have been a beautiful thing. 234 pgs. pb ~ Janice

     The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success.  Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.
